Ntizandekura Jean Luc

Jean Luc is a self-taught artist primarily focusing on semi-realism, coffee painting, contemporary embroidery, and pencil drawings. A firm believer in the power of art to promote change, his first painting series was about animals, and it was exhibited in Akagera Game Lodge in Rwanda's Akagera National Park. Among other things, Jean Luc aims to use his art to tell the stories of people whose voices are unheard. Besides working, he likes travelling to discover new places around Rwanda and watching movies on the weekends.
