Moses Izabiriza

Co-Founder @ Kuuru


As I have grown in my career, my work has become semi-abstract, abstract paintings and I also create art installation through repetitive and labor intensive techniques. I learned some of my methods, including weaving, sewing, rolling and twisting. Those techniques help me create fluidity and movement, allowing me to fully express my feelings in my artworks. Throughout my career, I have been motivated by the belief that “art has the power to heal people physically, mentally, and emotionally.” and also bring people together.

Moses Izabiriza's Bio

I was born in Rwanda. While I have been an artist my entire life, I have has been creating art professionally since 2012. I am influenced by many artists; however, I am a self-taught artist.

I  co-founded Rwanda’s leading art space “KUURU ART SPACE Kigali”  2017. This studio brings together the most skilled and talented artists from all over the country with the goal of making artworks to portray, develop and change lives through creativity. It is working to become a reference, and transform Rwanda’s art scene. I donate my time teaching arts and crafts to orphans and vulnerable children. I have also spent time working and volunteering at Rwandan orphanages and in Nigeria bright and playful murals that have been sponsored by both private individuals and NGOs. I have been participated in exhibitions locally and internationally.
