Strong Karakire is a Rwandan artist-in-residence at The GoDown Arts Centre.

‘Flowing Lights’ is a body of work developed during this residency and is a reflection of his experience in Nairobi. Strong says “In my mind painting is a game full of tribulation, joy and surprise. It is collision of bits of my memory and emotions, which finally settle down on the canvas.

The creation of my painting is like an adventure; full of uncertainty. The significance of painting is that l can face my true self.”
