Jackie the Third (Jackie III) Karuti is a Kenyan female artist with a background in multimedia design and what she describes as funky modern dance. ‘The Third’ majorly works with acrylics on canvas and paper as well as in multimedia. Her paintings are most notable for their warm vivid colors and usually incline towards semi-abstract and partial realism. ‘The Third’ recently started compiling work based on various concepts and these are set to be showcased as ‘performance art’ in the near future. She describes her visual and performance work as deeply provocative yet blissful and is largely inspired by secret musings in her mind. Besides being a visual and performance artist, The Third also writes and models.
