Meet Samson Otieno the man behind sculptures which hit headlines
In an interview with KTN, Samson Otieno a Sculptor living with disability said to have dropped out of school to pursue Art after he was incapable of coping up with life in school.
Otieno's light shone in December when he took to display his sculptures in an exhibition known as 'Utamaduni Day' which was held in Seme, Kisumu County.
Samson says the exhibition which was attended to by Kisumu Governor Prof. Peter Anyang' Nyong'o and Seme MP Dr. James Nyikal was a blessing in disguise when the two leaders decided to support his Art work.
"Sasa hapo ndio niliona kumbe Mungu ameanza kufungua daraja," said Samson.
"It is at that time I realized that God has started opening doors".
Otieno went ahead to say that creation is not easy. It takes the father of seven one week to create a single sculpture. He continued to urge Kenyans to support Artists who take their time to create Art.
Suprisingly, out of all his sculptures there was this one that caught Kenyans attention. The sculpture of the first lady Her Excellency Margaret Kenyatta left Kenyans talking with some loosing their cool.
Here are some of their reactions as retrieved from youtube;
