JOHN NDAMBO'S Biography
African Painting Artist John Ndambo has met with us on several occasions over the years for us to buy paintings from him. Our visits are very enjoyable and we are glad to call him a friend and fellow businessman.
We started handling John's artworks in 2004 and in 2009 met John for the first time in Nairobi, Kenya over a few drinks and found him to be disciplined and knowledgeable about his craft. And like some of the African artists on our website, John has become an integral voice about the sales of his paintings on our website and how we buy from African painters.
The following is exclusive information to True African Art .com about his biography, straight from John himself:
John Ndambo comes from the Chawai region of Taita Taveta, specifically in the Mwawache village of Kenya. Attending Mwawache Primary School and later, Mwafuga High School, John's art skills were influenced by his Father's business with African souvenir arts and crafts. "These art crafts inspired me very much," John says. "Some of them looked very artistic. Then after meeting some of my friends who were painting, I just got into it deeply and discovered I could create as an African artist." While growing up, John Ndambo's African art paintings were always a hit to all in his school community.
His very first African artworks were made in 1992 and were of horse riding and a Market scene. They were bought by the famous Gallery Watatu "which really gave me the moral to switch to painting full time" John says. "It's my passion now."
Now in his ealy 50's, John Ndambo frequently watches Maasai African tribes at their huts in Kenya or with their cows and also views them through visits to Arusha, Tanzania. John paints the Maasai tribe because he loves their culture and radiant red clothing. John says, "I found that so many people like my paintings of this kind." With palette knife in hand, he paints today from the visits he makes to Maasai land, having first started painting the subject in 1996.
John is a loving husband and devoted Father of three children: a daughter and two sons. Outside of Kenya, he has traveled to Arusha, Tanzania and Kampala, Uganda.
Ndambo's African artwork has traveled even farther. It has been showcased in the United States, Australia, Rome, and at the Edinburgh Art Festival in Scotland and London. John Ndambo's African art paintings have also been featured exclusively by The Royal Overseas League.
