Painting is self-discovery.
Every good artist paints what he is.

MY ART

Inspired by culture. Fueled by passion.

Welcome to my corner of the world, where art has been my outlet since I was a little boy. I am happiest covered in paint and lost in creating. My passion is telling stories through paint and found objects, inspired by my home country, Rwanda.
