Biography Charles Sekano
Born in 1945, Charles Sekano holds a unique place in the story of South African exile art and, following a thirty year stay in Nairobi, a major position in the history of Kenyan art.
Whilst a young man Sekano's life changed forever when his beloved birthplace, Sophiatown, was raised to the ground by the apartheid regime in South Africa and his family forcibly resettled in Soweto. The impact of this upheaval led to the shattering of the artist's network of family friends and ultimately to the tragic loss of his father and his family life. For Sekano, Sophiatown is the magical mythical city of his youth and remains the inspiration for much of his later artistic work.
