24-year-old Victor Mwangi, alias Viktart, is the latest graffiti sensation in Nairobi. He’s recently just blown up but he’s been in the scene since 2016. The B.A in fine Arts & Design Kenyatta university graduate says he looks up to Bantu, another brilliant street artist whose work can be seen around the city.

He gets commissioned by offices and private residences from time to time but he does most of his work out of pocket-for the love of art. And even though he got formal training in uni, he says spray painting is an integral part of his pieces and is a skill he picked up after graduating by learning on the job. Check out his work
