Stary Mwaba: The Exhibition

Last Thursday we visited 37D, an art gallery here in Lusaka for a solo exhibition by Stary Mwaba, hosted by the stART Foundation.

This was his first solo exhibition since his year away at the KFW – Stiftung Residency in Berlin.

We had seen work by this talented artist before, but never in a solo exhibition, but, finally the wait was over and we got to witness Stary’s new works, which have evolved “incorporating an urban, edgy Berlin-esque nuance” – the eye-catching invite said.

That said, enjoy!
