Peter Kibunja was born in 1975 in Ngecha Location Kiambu District.
It was in the “Art Scene” of his local dwelling that he met his idol, Wanyu Brush. Brush, a popular artist from Peter’s village, would become his teacher in 1992. Wanyu Brush guided Peter for about six months through paintings and providing him with artistic material. Peter is strongly influenced by Pablo Picasso in portraying faces. Peter is inspired by the surroundings, e.g daily activities in the community.
In 1996 he met an old British supporter who also provided Peter with artistic material. For four years he stayed with him in his work place working as a designer, which further strengthened his skills as an artist.
It was during that time that he made a lot of sales that made him realize the progress. Since then he has received international respect. He has exhibited in Kenya, Germany, Belgium and France.
