ABOUT THE ARTIST
WHO IS NITRA
The artist Nitra was born in Rwanda, November 27, 1985.
As a 9 years old boy he moved to Belgium. Since then, Nitra has been grown up in two cultures.
It is clearly visible how he is able to unite the best of those two worlds in his works of art. His great love for his native country is clearly evident in the way in which he manages to portray the beautiful animals from Africa: powerful, sparkling and penetrating, but also his abstract works with something of the modesty of the Western world.

• 2018 Feria del Caballo Español and he was allowed to exhibit in the Belfort in Bruges.
• In 2018 he made his breakthrough as an artist after an exhibition in Monaco, Fairmont.
