We had two volunteer graffiti artists, who are under Florence Ndinda Mentorship Program, come to paint one of our Lamu room blocks. The artists were here with a large conference group known as International Christian Conference (ICC) sometime in June 2019.

Ibra Ndung'u better known as E-bruh is a graffiti artist. Well known for his mushroom characters, graffiti circle have nicknamed him the “mushroom kid". E-bruh is one of the protégé’s members of the BSQ crew,a street art group based in Nairobi, Kenya. He is the mentee of renowned artists, Thufu_B and Kaymist 4, who are the founders of the BSQ crew. His work focuses on the beauty of African mothers, daughters and the female gender at large. The artworks mostly focus on traditional African cultures, as he puts it “it will all be forgotten unless it’s archived in art".

E-bruh has participated in community-based projects as Nai Ni Who, Pawa festival, Street Diaries and the Sunday Boyz where graffiti artists gather to go paint in different neighbourhoods like Jericho.

Dust depo is where he started his art journey in 2015 under the mentorship of Patrick Mukabi, then joined the Bsq studio as he had a passion for graffiti. He has showcased his works in several places such as The National Museum, Dusit 2 hotel, Kenya art fair, Alliance Francaise, Creative garage, Sanaa festival held in Australia.

He hopes to showcase his artworks to the rest of the universe. To him, there's no dream that can't be achieved.
