Kenyan Culture & Digital Collage with WanjiGallery

It is our honor to introduce WanjiGallery, the Meta Angels x Adobe Artist-in-Residence for March! WanjiGallery is a street photographer and digital collage artist based out of Kenya.

This lifelong creative derives inspiration from both her experiences and the environment in and around Nairobi. She is passionate about the human experience and mental health and weaves these themes through her body of work. As part of her residence, WanjiGallery will be creating a custom work as a free mint to our community. We look forward to what she will create with her mastery of photography and digital collage, until then, you can explore her works on her HUG artist profile.
