I am Rwandese, but I was born in Zaire (DRC), so I was fortunate to not be in Rwanda during the 1994 Genocide. After moving to London, I became obsessed with the stories of the genocide and wanted to understand how and why such an atrocity could be possible. I read books and watched documentaries on the subject, and soon became tormented by the horrors and images of skulls and violence. While learning and working as a graphic designer, I created the Skull and Dove collection to help me deal with my pain and sorrows,  and soon I had a new interpretation, a sort of new beginning, a rebirth from death.
