Who we are
KomezArt is a virtual art space gathering Rwanda’s top artists under one platform, dedicated to selling original artworks and opening doors for artwork to reach art lovers around the world. We aim to fortify Rwanda’s growing artistic ecosystem and push the presence of Rwandan art forward globally.
Based in Rwanda’s capital city, Kigali, the name KomezArt comes from the Kinyarwanda word ‘Komeza’, which means ‘to continue’ or ‘to strengthen’ something. The concept for KomezArt was born amidst the 2020 COVID19 lockdown which found traditional art galleries with doors shuttered and the sale of artworks halted for much of Rwanda’s artist community. The need to strengthen and push artists and artwork forward through new ways that make artwork accessible and affordable, became clear very quickly.
