Biography / Louis Masai

Louis Masai is a London-based painter, sculptor and muralist. He uses his art in the form of murals, paintings and installations as a way to highlight the 6th mass extinction, climate change and species equality. Louis has worked with URBAN NATION on a wealth of projects from URBAN NATION @ Lollapalooza 2017 to his artwork contribution at Project M713 ‘The Monster Project’. Louis is also a part of the class of 2018 in the URBAN NATION Artist in Residence Programme.

Educated via the prestigious Falmouth School of Art, In his previous exhibition ‘Afrofabrication’, Louis entwined fabric patterns to animals, createing a comment upon the human requirement to be covered but yet, using flamboyant colours to gain the attraction of others. Louis maintains a balance of finding human references to contrast a concept that at first may not be so clear, to question why some aspects of nature such as endangered species go ignored and less significant aspects are kept in the limelight.

In 2017, Louis launched the All Fruits Ripe Podcast, recorded in south London with Adam Hylu of Unit 137, the podcast consist of open discussions and exploration into environmental issues with experts in their given field, the Podcast aims to unearth the ways that many inspiring individuals are picking their own ripened fruits.
