Louis Masai

Louis Masai has lived in London since 2010. A full-time artist, he combines studio painting with painting murals in the public domain. His subject matter focuses on animals but strives to find a human reference to juxtapose an element that might not be obvious. ‘Last of my Kind’ documents critically endangered birds with references to extinct musicians. The idea for this series was to question why humans often fail to recognise a disappearing species yet mourn the death of a celebrity.
