I am Elias Mung’ora. Born and raised in Central Kenya in East Africa. I am 22 years and have been drawing since I was a little kid. I attended college for 2 years to pursue a degree in Real-Estate before dropping out at the end of 2013 to pursue a career in art. My love is in portraiture and to an extent cityscapes. I have discovered different mediums in the short period i have been drawing and my latest obsession is the Bic (ballpoint) pen. I use other mediums also: charcoal, pencil, acrylic paints and watercolours. My aim is to share and get some exposure to the rest of the world. I believe we have some amazing art from this part of the world and it would be my joy if more people got to see it and experience it too.



Contact the artist via Keith McFarlane (Portraits Africa)at editor@negativeentropy.net who will provide an introduction. Artist and buyer are free to negotiate on both subject and price. While the artist has provided a guide-price or price indication, the first step in any commission is that artist and buyer agree the price, size, subject and materials of the composition and its delivery date. Portraits Africa will then request the agreed commission fee from the buyer, and on receipt of that fee will advise the artist to start work. The fee will not be released to the artist until the work has been completed and delivered to the buyer. Should a dispute arise between artist and buyer, it is Portraits Africa that will adjudicate. For the service prospectus, Terms & Conditions, see Commissioning a Portrait.
