Shiku Wangombe

Hey there! I’m Shiku Wangombe!

I’m an artist, architectural designer, poet, musician and writer, and more recently an entrepreneur. But you may have gauged most of that already if you’ve rummaged around my site. So I’ll mention a few other fun facts…

I’m an inquisitive spirit, born and raised in Nairobi, Kenya where I currently reside. I completed my B.Arch at the University of Southern California in May 2017, and have lived in the U.S. for a total of 7 years.

Besides painting, I love traveling, talking to strangers, collecting their stories, and thinking about how they somehow all work together towards a larger narrative. These stories inspire my poetry and, on occasion, my art. I also enjoy playing the piano and guitar, and fan-girling over my incredibly talented sister.

I have a serious mild obsession with wildlife, safaris and Nat Geo documentaries (or any kind of documentaries to be honest), so if you love any of these, we will be instant friends.

So I’m glad you made it here. I hope you’ll enjoy my photos, paintings, designs and musings, and always feel free to reach out with any questions, comments or collaboration ideas!
