Curious about what inspires us at Soko? Check out the exhibition of one of our favorite artists, Wangechi Mutu, at the Brooklyn Museum in New York.

With strong ties to both Nairobi and NYC, the Soko team is always excited when these two worlds collide. Born in Nairobi, Kenya, and now based in Brooklyn, Mutu is a world renowned artist whose complex collages explore globalization through a lens that takes into account perspectives from fashion, politics, African tradition, and science.


At Soko, we love exploring new materials as we develop the pieces in our collections, so we’re inspired by the exquisite materiality of Mutu’s work - her collages include found objects, magazine cutouts, sculpture, and painted elements.

We’re also loving this interview of Mutu and Santigold about their recent video collaboration:
