At the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, Nairobi - Kenya.


The most powerful and memorable moment for any graffiti writer to paint an International Airport. The exposure, the power in the visual, the alchemy intertwined with the conflictual mind.

This is true power, soul power.

WiseTwo a street artist whose work is based on intensive research focusing on ancient civilizations and their writing systems, tribal markings, African Masks and patterns which subconsciously affect us one way or another. WiseTwo believes that all that we are today has a lot to do with the ancient of times. The way we think the way we speak and what we speak in regard to languages and how we relate to people through different cultural norms.

This research allows him to fuse and create his own interpretation and form of writing pattern that is fused with the murals created.

WiseTwo has been and played an integral part in bringing graffiti art to the mainstream audience in East Africa. Wise Two is also accredited with creating an awareness of the Kenyan graffiti art movement amongst the global graffiti community through his involvements in various international exhibitions and events.
