Notes

Waruguru received a BFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design, USA. Her work has been exhibited in America, France, South Africa and Kenya. She has participated in residencies in Kenya and Sydney, Australia and recently took part in the Saba Artists Residency in Lamu. Waruguru participated in the inaugural edition of the Stellenbosch Triennale, South Africa, 2020.
Waruguru’s work ranges from painting, drawing, printmaking, needlework and installation. The materiality of objects in space is at the core of my explorations, which are intimately rooted in personal identity politics, often referencing women’s practices and traditional cultural identifiers.

Exhibitions include: her first Solo Exhibition 'Small Things to Consider' at Circle Art Gallery this September 2020, She has recently participated in multiple group shows include 'On The Cusp', Stellenbosch Triennale, South Africa, 'I Will See What I Want To See' & 'Lucid Dreams' Nairobi, KE, Circle Art Gallery, 'A Place That is Not Yours' ,Savannah, GA.
