By Collin Sekajugo
Rwandan artist Collin Sekajugo has in the last couple of months been working on new artworks that are very unusual of his style.
"I am using locally found materials that I have collected or made from trash in my surrounding here in Africa.
I am focusing on materials that can be found through things that we in Africa live with, i.e old plastics, metal, wood iron sheets, copper and steel wire and the line goes."

I have made close study on these materials and after a couple of experiments, I discovered that they are very sustainable.
It's very hard work indeed but it has produced what I personally call, 'Fruits of my life' as I struggle to re-invent my style of painting and sculpture.
Therefore I have worked on over 20 pieces that I am soon going to unveil to all my clients and fans.
I will start by a show that will open in Kigali, Rwanda this June 17th 2010 - details will be unveiled soon on the AfricanColours website.
Collin is the founder of Ivuka Arts in Kigali, an ambitious project that aims to develop Rwanda’s contemporary art by honing the skills of promising young artists and providing a platform for their exposure both locally and internationally.
