Dennis Muraguri is multimedia artist working in painting, printmaking installations and sculpturing. Mostly recognised for his body of work inspired by matatu (Kenyan minibuses and vans that are the main mode of public transport), Muraguri explores urban culture of contemporary Nairobi. In these sculptures, he works with recycled wood and metal to create a representation of the industrialization in Kenya.

Muraguri has been a resident artist at Kuona Trust in Nairobi since 2005. He graduated from Buru Buru Institute of Fine Arts with a diploma in Painting and Art History. Recent exhibitions include Recent Work, Circle Art Gallery (2016), and Matatu Games, Kuona Trust (2014) — both in Nairobi, Kenya.
