Poster: Krook by Dennis Muraguri

Hop on!  In Kenya, matatus are the main form of public transportation, and matatu culture is a vibrant reflection of the here and now--including everything from music to the iconographic art decorating the side panels, as well as the "mastingo" or "stunts" performed off the side. These very special, signed digital reproductions of original woodcut prints are a colorful and eye-catching addition to any space.
This print depicts the Krook matatu, based on a photograph but with additional branding and relevant iconography added by the artist, particularly related to the Black Lives Matter movement and the Coronavirus (marked by the masked woman standing in the foreground). In discussing the inspiration for this piece, the artist mentioned: "We consume a lot of media in Kenya, and much of it is foreign-dominated, so the popular culture often feels more global than local."
This is a digital reproduction of a woodcut print that was made using a reduction process. In this technique, a single block of wood is used, with each layer of color subsequently cut away after the previous layer is printed, such that the final woodcut can never be used to reproduce the same design.
