Completely non-representational, the works of Justus Kyalo use colour
irrationally. There is, of course, colour as hue, but it is even more a substance
and a material; an emotion.
Justus lays down colours together, not only according to their visual potential,
but also based on their physical structure.
His working practice is both improvised and planned, and he works on several works simultaneously. Justus' paintings undergo multiple variations of colour and textural juxtapositions that are reworked, until they are harmonized.
Justus has showed his work in numerous group and solo exhibitions in Kenya and abroad; including in London, Madrid and Washington. He has followed residencies and workshops in the USA, England, and Cameroon.
