Born in 1988 in Kajiado, Lemek currently lives and practices in Nairobi. He attended an Art and Drawing course at the Creative Art College, Nairobi in 2005. In 2013, he took up a studio at Kuona Trust Art Centre to begin a full-time art practice. Using charcoal, pastel and graphite on paper, his work reflects a curiosity about public spaces and the dynamics of human conduct.
