Ruramai's Renaissance Exhibition

Ruramai Musekiwa

Ruramai Musekiwa is a young, talented, visionary artist. Her exhibition is a series of works with a powerful message.

Speaking about her work and the inspiration behind it Ruramai says, "The Renaissance Exhibition is an introductory showcase of a collection of digital illustrations. My work is mainly an expression of my dissection of the internal human experience and a celebration of Afrocentricity beyond oppression. As a young African woman, I believe that as Africans, oppression and subjugation are relevant segments in our story, but there are stories beyond that. Positive stories that should be our frame of reference. I seek to bring that through in my art."

The exhibition includes the Sibahle poster series which Ruramai says is organically growing and its overarching message is one of self-love and pride. "Every woman illustrated in this series radiates a strength/beauty/aura that resonates with me, makes me proud to be a beautiful African woman," says Ruramai. Her vision for the Sibahle (translation: We are beautiful) series is to reinforce self-love and a sense of pride and to send a message to young women to reframe the concept of beauty and to shape that idea individually on their pathways.

Her exhibition 'Renaissance' is on at Longstreet Art Lovers 1932 Art Gallery in Waterkloof until 18 February.
