Mbatha Nguta is a Kenyan Australian artist, he has been painting in the REDinc. Studio for the last 16 years.
Mbatha is an Autistic artist, a gentle and contemplative person, and other times full of movement, laughter and dance. All of which are reflected in his painting.
Mbatha is an abstract artist who creates strong movement in his painting using bold colours, his hands and his brushes to transform non-functional and automatic behaviour into purpose, structure and meaning.
Mbatha’s distinct hand marks across the canvas create a very personal style that has become obvious throughout his Art practice.
Having exhibited in numerous exhibitions throughout his 16 years creating his art, he slowly establishes a reputation as a known artist.
