‘Selek Arts Collection' showcases the dignity behind the hands that feed us
In a world where glamour and fame often
steal the spotlight, there’s an artist who has chosen to turn his
attention to the unsung heroes of our society – the everyday people
who do simple jobs that keep the wheels of our lives turning.
Seleman Kubwimana has embarked on a mission to showcase the dignity and importance of the hands that feed us through his remarkable artwork.
Selek’s latest series of paintings focuses on the supply chain for food, from the agricultural heartland of Musanze to the bustling city of Kigali. By highlighting the men and women who toil tirelessly to ensure food reaches our tables, he aims to elevate their role and remind us of their immense contributions.
asked about his inspiration, Kubwimana speaks passionately, ” In
Kigali, there is a process that we go through in order to get a
finished product. Some people use boats to transport products from
different islands. I wanted to bring attention to the
often-overlooked laborers who are an integral part of the food supply
chain,” he said.
Seleman Kubwimana was born on the 1st of January 1995 in Rwanda’s Nyarugenge District of the Nyakabanda Sector in the city of Kigali. He is a Rwandan artist whose contemporary artwork is known for its beauty, emotion, color, and use of shapes.
His intricate technique consists of circles and patterns that represent the cycle of life and the vibrancy of African culture. Seleman sees art as a bridge to communicate the emotions of his subjects into the viewers eye.
He studied at Nyundo School of Art and music for three years from 2014-2016. It was there that he obtained his secondary school diploma in graphic arts. Seleman also has Advanced diploma in Digitsl Media Production at the Integrated Polytechnic Regional College of Kigali.
When he is painting, Seleman is always highly engaged and inspired by his subjects which helps him to produce thoughtprovoking artworks using his unique techniques.
Seleman’s paintings inspire peace and love on the African continent and the purpose of his artwork is to promote Rwandan and African culture worldwide.
