Michael Soi

Michael Soi’s work provides a satirical commentary of social, economic and political trends. His work explores relationships – intergenerational, interracial or generally what he calls the ‘economics of love’. Commercial sex work and popular culture within the context of globalisation and consumerism are all themes that are presented in his illustrations. His work is informed by a strong tradition of cartoonists whose works have satirised Kenyan society since independence.

The value of satire is often seen to only entertain, however, it is a route to highlight sensitive social, political, religious and economic concerns. Acting as an alternate narrative, satirical work can broadcast the otherwise unmentionable.

Michael Soi was born, works and lives in Nairobi and is a member of what is termed as the second generation of Kenyan artists that emerged through Kuona in the late 90's among a group of other notable artists of his generation. In 1996, He begun his career as a sculptor and subsequently refined his own visual and artistic vocabulary over the years.
