Erick Ayoti: Boda Boda
OK, I have to give a mea culpa here-- I failed to take a picture that can adequately capture how amazing this painting is. Boda boda, or bicycle taxi drivers, are carrying about their daily activities in chaos, which could be a famous sudden rainstorm (which sometimes results in fist-size hail), or perhaps it's less literal, something to do with order and chaos, daily routines and the swirling madness around them. In any case, this painting is a jaw-dropper. A detail below.
