Bakunzi Jean Bosco

Fun Fact: He is an autodidact but counts (Richard) Onyango (Kenya), (Collins) Sekajugo (Rwanda) and Joseph Kartoon (Kenya) among his influences. He combs his paintings to increase flow and give them texture. 


  “I see painting as a special medium that allows me to explore my ideas, creativity, and emotions. When I am producing art, I feel free with my style, and I am empowered to enjoy the movement of my tools. In choosing my subjects, I find inspiration in nature, my surroundings, everyday life and happiness…”

More: He lost both his parents in the genocide and used art to deal with the situation 

Throughout my career, I have been motivated by the belief that “art has the power to heal people physically, mentally, and emotionally.

  With this belief in mind, I founded Rwanda’s leading art center, “Uburanga Arts Studio” in March 2010. This studio brings together the most skilled and talented artists from all over the country with the goal of developing Rwanda’s fine art scene.

 I donate my time teaching arts and crafts to orphans and vulnerable children, especially those at Gisimba Memorial Center Orphanage. I have also spent time working and volunteering at Rwandan orphanages and hospitals painting bright and playful murals that have been sponsored by both private individuals and NGOs.
