Growing up in Western Kenya, Peter Elungat was just a child when he began drawing. In 1997 he joined Kuona Trust Museum Art Studio, Nairobi and attended numerous workshops where he developed his painting.

Elungat’s paintings of his single female figure Angelina, such as this one, created in the style of the major Renaissance painters and painted in muted earth tones, continue to captivate an audience of both local and international collectors.

Elungat has exhibited in Canada, Singapore and Europe and his work is in many corporate collections in Kenya.
