We were thrilled to see one of Diani’s star residents, Christopher Odinga, featured on national television.

Christopher is a celebrated local sand artist who has not let hardship and physical disability stop him from sharing his amazing talent with residents and tourists along Diani Beach. Christopher has held sand art sessions with local school students and given parents a chance to dine in peace by getting the kids involved in creating some truly unique pieces of art.

Christopher’s most famous creations include his depiction of Africa’s Big Five and his annual Christmas snowmen which are a centrepiece of countless holiday photos at Nomad.

Christopher can be found plying his trade under a kikoy shade cloth on the white sandy beach outside Nomad, every Sunday and more often throughout the holiday season.

Always a friendly face, Christopher will be happy to show you his art and to welcome your support.
