Fred is a creative Kenyan artist who started art at an early age.
His compositions are mainly done with oil paint on canvas but he is diversifying his craft and has ventured into mixed media collage constructions and has recently been working on a project inspired by classical music executed through mixed media constructions.
Fred Abuga’s creations are influenced by colour, nature and women’s activities. Made with his typical broad strokes of single hues, the paintings are a rainstorm of colour that melts into unity when viewed from a distance.
Fred holds a diploma in fine art from the Buruburu Institute of Fine Arts (BIFA) and has participated in numerous exhibitions both locally and abroad. In 2006 he was the most promising male artist in the ”Contemporary Art in Kenya” juried exhibition held at the French Cultural Centre and at the German Institute, Nairobi.
