Biography
17 January 2019

Biko Wesa (b1992) is a self-taught artist based in Kenya using photography to communicate. He focuses primarily on exploring his personal and collective roots and identity. Still evolving and occasionally battling bouts of depression, he recently adopted a nomadic lifestyle as a way of pushing him to create more. Striving to experiment and explore with other mediums, he picked up woodworking and has no idea what that means. Unsure of his writing skills, he typed this biography on Grammarly. It responded with Nothing can stop you now! As superstitious as he is, he took that as a message from God. © 2020
