Modern Contemporay Art in Nairobi

I am coming to Nairobi in a couple of weeks and was wondering if any good markets or shops or even street vendors where one might look for the work of young artists of modern contemporary art. Not the norm of lions and the such or Masai warriors, but more cutting edge with vibrant colors.

Thanks so much.

Banana Hill Gallery, in Banana Hiil, has some good stuff. You take a cab past Village Market towards Limuru, or bus/matatu I think #117.

There is a "Gallery Watatu" in town, but i believe it's now under receivership.

That said, i've seen some beautiful batik paintings (using vibrant colours) at the local City Market.

Gallery Watatu in Standard Street? Didn't it close last year?

I wish there were more…
