Slanted in Ruanda: Innocent Nkurunziza / Inema Arts Center

Slanted in Rwanda: Innocent Nkurunziza / Inema Arts Center

Special Issue Rwanda

Author: Clara Weinreich

For our special issue Slanted Rwanda we traveled to Kigali, the capital of Rwanda, in February 2019 and met numerous designers and artists in their studios.

For our researches we met Innocent Nkurunziza in his studio. Innocent is at the forefront of the growing Rwandan fine art movement. The desire to transform lives through art drives his work each day. Innocent co-founded Inema Arts Center with his brother and fellow painter, Emmanuel Nkuranga. His work is exhibited around the world from New York, Wilmington NC, Tucson AR, Portland OR, Boston, Charlottesville, and Washington DC in the U.S., to UK, Scotland, Canada, Germany, Denmark, and The Netherlands.

The exciting works of Innocent Nkurunziza can be found in the Slanted Special Issue Rwanda, additionally we conducted a video interview with Innocent about his attitude and work. Take a look at our new issue and the video platform to meet a new side of Rwanda!
