About ELISHA ONGERE
Like many African artists, Elisha Ongere discovered his art talent through recreation and experimentation as a child. The difference with Ongere is that he knew even before starting primary school that he had a firm gift for African art paintings. This was reinforced when Ongere attended Ratanga Primary School in Nyanza Province, Kenya, where peers and teachers were constantly interested in his drawings, portraits, and coloring.
As years passed, Ongere matured in his form. Beginning in 1991, he started taking his African artworks to local city galleries and they flourished.
Elisha Ongere's contemporary, abstract, African oil paintings now have extensive exposure beyond Kenya including the United States, Germany, France, Switzerland, Ireland, Britain, and Japan. He has exhibited and sold locally in National Museum's Gallery of Contemporary East African Art, the French Cultural Center, the French and German Embassies, African Heritage Store, Tazama Gallery, Ramoma Gallery, and the Gallery Watatu.
