Bebeto Ochieng, better known as Thufu-B is a master of lines. Graffiti circles have fondly dubbed him the “Lines man”.
Thufu-B is one of the founding members of BSQ crew, a street art group based in Kenya’s Capital, Nairobi.
He is a mentee of re-known artists; Patrick Mukabi & Uhuru Brown and has closely worked with the two.
His work focuses mainly on African females. Notably, he has a special bias for BBW which is Big Beautiful Women, given his fascination for the African Woman’s features. As he puts it:
“Female poses are more fluid, more loving. They inspire the best out of my creativity”
Thufu-B has participated in community based projects such as Nai Ni Who & others at the Kenya National Theatre. His work has captured audiences and has been exhibited in:
International School of Kenya,
The KICC Culture Show,
the Go-Down Center,
The National Museum of Kenya.
Kenya Art Fair
He has also participated in residency programs at Kuona Trust and held solo shows at Que Pasa Bar n Bistro and the Creative’s Garage.
In 2016, he took part in a Europe Aid Graffiti Event organized by the European Union and held in Belgium.
Ultimately, he hopes to showcase his work to the world. His dreams stretch wide and vast.
