Hailing from Kenya, Ndongaart’s passion for art started at a young age. He was always fascinated by science fiction and the endless possibilities it presented.

I navigate the currents, aiming to rekindle the innocent yearnings of childhood, hopeful that this journey propels me to celestial heights and returns me, enlightened, from the stars’ embrace.
After honing his skills as a digital artist, Ndongaart began to explore the concept of African futurism. This genre combines elements of traditional African culture with futuristic technology, creating a unique and vibrant aesthetic. Ndongaart’s artwork often features futuristic versions of Kenyan landscapes, incorporating traditional elements such as Maasai warriors, colorful fabrics, and vibrant marketplaces.
