Jean Paul Mugisha, a self-taught pyrography artist is working on his solo exhibition dubbed ‘Clarity,’ where each piece serves as a mirror reflecting the complexities of human existence.

Scheduled for June 5, at Centre Culturel Français, Kimuhurura, the exhibition delves into themes of social values, love, resilience and pain.

Born in Rwanda in 1999, Mugisha’s artistic journey began at a young age when he discovered his love for drawing. In nursery school, he enjoyed creating a humorous depiction of a car using simple lines.

His artistic journey took a significant turn when he discovered pyrography, the art of wood burning. However, he faced an obstacle when he couldn’t afford a pyrography machine but he ingeniously found a way to shape his artistic vision by utilizing a soldering iron as a substitute tool.
