The behaviour of tangible and intangible materials intrigues me.

The patterns they go through connect with human psychology.

I am a Production, Material and Performance Artist. 

Hello! I'm naitiemu

Check out my latest project Enkang' ang' - an immersive experience within a traditional Maasai manyatta homestead; with a re-imagined future.

Art is food to the soul

A collection of audio-visual stories. I aim to connect with all your senses while answering the most basic questions:

Why are we really here?

Films, music videos, festivals, installations, animations, sound collection

The feeling of touching something. The textures, the visual stimulations, the transformation of materials from one to the next. These materials have emotions too, expressed in their own ways :

Paintings, collages, photographs, woodcut prints, metal artworks, digital artworks

The energy I feel and consume is expressed through body motion; every emotion carries a beat that can be played.

Addressing matters on mental health, identity, sex, cultural heritage among other.

Performance artworks, video performances

I AM...

I am curious about understanding human psychology and our relationship with our environment.

By exploring myself as an individual connected with community and nature, I create experiences and artworks that provoke conversations around mental health awareness, culture and female energy.

I am a material, production and performance artist, with a background in civil engineering.

I combine multiple ways in which our senses and perceptions are influenced by spaces and stories.

I have worked on installations that involve transformation of spaces using waste materials such as Kilifi New Year installation ; ‘MEET GOD’, which upcycled thousands of plastic bottles into a tunnel installation ; with mirrors; a space of reflection and calmness during the festival frenzy.

I work as festival lead at Nairobi Design, which entails curating, coordinating and showcasing exceptional, unconventional experiences with the community in Kenya, and Africa, while collaborating globally.

Nairobi Design Week 2023, the 8th edition, took place from March 11th-19th at Opportunity Factory, themed ‘It's What We Make It.'
