Michael Soi

Aloha mon rafiki! (Yes I just mixed three different languages in a greeting leaving you in total awe of my coolness)

As you were 🙂

I hope you are all doing great. One thing I know for certain is that I am over the moon this fine Friday morning! Sending waves of love your way!

I am bringing it back to the motherland with today’s featured creative guest. Also, I am sure many of you will be really excited to know more about this remarkable human being…


Michael Soi is his name and drawing/painting is his game.


Piu piu! (gun shots… because… shmurddaaa!)

The first time I came across a Michael Soi painting was at Havana Club & Restaurant in Nairobi. I think I was on a date and the conversation we had about those paintings was pretty epic.


You see, Michael’s paintings are not your ordinary (ooh let me paint and make it as abstract as possible to confuse the masses) kind of paintings.

His are Simple Colourful & Pretty damn Epic!
The paintings in Havana have ass, boobs, voluptuous women, cops, politicians and so many elements which ultimately deliver Michael Soi’s satirical social and political commentary. He gives his opinion on various topics through his art in a rather catchy and commendable manner


I followed him on Facebook and Instagram and I have to admit that his feed and timeline are one of the few I diligently follow thanks to his amazing skill.

He sells these super cool bags at his workshop located at the Godown Centre.
(Christmas gift! Anyone?)
