Kimathi Mafafo a Frieze Week Standout Artist says Artsy Insider

Kimathi Mafafo has been highlighted as a Frieze Week Breakout Artist in an article published by Artsy Insider following her success in London. Lead editor for Art Market and News, Benjamin Sutton, features Mafafo along with Zanele Muholi and Mandy El-Sayegh as the week's "most sought-after artists".

To quote Sutton:

'Mafafo’s Frieze Week success extends beyond 1-54; she’s also having her first solo show in London, with Kristin Hjellegjerde Gallery, through early November. On Artsy, demand for her work increased dramatically in 2020 and shows no signs of slowing. In the first three quarters of 2021, the number of collectors inquiring about her work on the platform has nearly doubled from the same period in 2020. With a star turn at 1-54 and her solo debut in the U.K., the momentum behind Mafafo’s captivating textiles seems destined to increase.'
