ColabNowNow digital creatives
Fellow ColabNowNow digital creatives, John Magati, Illustrator from Kenya and Candida Merwe, multi-disciplinary artist from South Africa. 

John Magati is a Visual Artist from Nairobi, Kenya who mainly uses photography and illustration as a medium. He joined two other artists from East Africa as part of ColabNowNow. We briefly caught up with John in between all the collaborating.

"My background is in photography so I’ve been able to try and use digital art to move my photography forward." John's work focuses on fashion, time and location as they help him define the impact of society, and help him express himself and his ideas.

"My experience here with the British Council has been quite exciting, because I have the chance to get out and show my work and to connect with other creatives. To learn from them has been a tremendous and uplifting moment for me. I am still a young artist, but I believe this opportunity will enable me to continue with my work."
