Romeo Niyigena, born in 1999 in Kigali, Rwanda, is a multidisciplinary artist who has been nurturing his passion for art since his early years in elementary school. Growing up in Kigali, he discovered his profound love for artistic expression, which set the foundation for his future career in the arts.

Driven by a strong desire to formalize his education in the arts, Niyigena pursued his studies with the goal of becoming a graphic designer. This pursuit led him to the Ecole d’arts de NYUNDO, where he honed his skills and deepened his understanding of art and design.

Niyigena's primary mediums are oils and acrylics on canvas, through which he brings his artistic visions to life. His work is heavily inspired by the diversity of the world, a fascination that has been further fueled by the internet. This access to a global platform allowed him to explore various cultures, especially those within Africa, which have significantly influenced his artistic style and themes.

A unique aspect of Niyigena's art is that every piece he creates is accompanied by a poetic expression, adding a deeper layer of meaning and storytelling to his work. Each of his creations is more than just a visual piece; it is a narrative, rich with unique stories and meanings that reflect his observations and experiences of the world. As a result, his art resonates on multiple levels, offering viewers not just aesthetic pleasure but also an opportunity to engage with the stories and emotions embedded in each piece. Romeo Niyigena continues to make his mark in the art world, representing the vibrant and diverse spirit of Kigali through his compelling and thought-provoking artworks.
