  • Description

    ALREADY AN ACCOMPLISHED NOVELIST, MRS. REBEKA NJAU LAUNCHED HEAR LATEST VENTURE AT NAIROBI'S PAA YA PAA GALLERY YESTERDAY (TUESDAY, APRIL 7TH). THE WELL-KNOWN AUTHORESS IS MOVING INTO A FIELD DOMINATED BY HER EQUALLY FAMOUS HUSBAND, ELIMO NJAU -- THAT OF "PICTURE MAKING" WITH A NEW APPROACH.

    THE EXHIBITION WAS OPENED BY MR. JOHN ITHAU, THE UNDER-SECRETARY IN THE KENYAN MINISTRY OF INFORMATION. MANY LEADING PERSONALITIES WERE PRESENT AT THE CEREMONY, INCLUDING MR. NJAU, WHO HAS BEEN A GUIDING HAND IN HIS WIFE'S NEWLY-FOUND SUCCESS.

    A LATE STARTER IN THE FIELD OF VISUAL EFFECTS, REBEKA NJAU SPENT TWO YEARS OF INTENSIVE STUDY BEFORE WHAT WAS JUST A BUDDY, BECAME AS IMPORTANT AS HER WRITING.

    MR. ITHAU CONGRATULATED MRS. NJAU ON HER UNIQUE APPROACH TO ART, WHICH HAS ALREADY GAINED GREAT PRAISE IN HER HOME STATE OF TANZANIA.

    THE TOTAL EFFECT OF THE ARTIST'S PICTURES COMBINE THE QUALITIES OF SILK SCREEN, BATIK AND TIE-DYES. NAIROBI ART CRITICS DESCRIBE HER STYLE OF DRAWING OR PICTURE-MAKING AS "BOTH CAREFUL AND SPONTANEOUS", HENCE THE FRESH AND FINISHED EFFECT.
