Patti Endo was born 1997 in Tokyo, Japan, and studied fine art painting and critical thinking at the University of Brighton, UK. Deriving influences from both her African and Japanese parentage, Patti Endo’s curiosity is drawn to the mysteries of the human body. Endo’s drawings are mostly made on small sheets of paper. They are intimate, shameless, exploratory and sensual, allowing the viewer to look inside themselves, to reconsider their stereotypes of those around them, to remind us of the brevity of youth, beauty and life itself, to challenge modes of perceptions of reality, and to question where in fact our very identity lies and how it is constructed. Endo has participated in several group exhibitions in Nairobi and Dubai, as well as solo exhibitions in Japan. She lives and works in Nairobi, Kenya.
