Moses Izabiriza

‘The people, colours and dynamic rhythm of nature within my world are the basis from which my art is derived. Each day I live my dream of working as a visual artist to inspire people to accept new perspectives.’

Visual Artist


Born in 1992 in Rwanda, Moses Izabiriza spent most of his childhood in Kigali. After losing his mother at the age of two during the Rwandan Genocide, Moses discovered art as a means to heal himself and work through his pain and grief. He started creating art at the age of eight by making small toy cars with wires.
Moses started noticing the abstract semi-realism in many exhibitions in the country and abroad, so he decided to implement that regional style into his art. He paints with bare fingers, brushes and palette knives executing bold and expressive artworks. His signature style consists of hundreds of geometric shapes like triangles, squares and circles from which he builds his compositions.
