Dan Ngalamulume (Ngaara)

Dan Ngalamulume aka Ngaara is a Rwanda-based traditional visual artist working across 2D conceptual art, handmade collages, illustrated storybooks, and storyboarding from short films to music visualisations. He created a comic book and in 2019, he started creating music as part of the collective, Antik Dust. Ngaara studied Global Challenges at the African Leadership University.

In his residency at 32° East, he explored “self-inflicted solitude” as an attempt to examine and understand this innate impulse that pushes us towards trying to escape the discomfort of solitude. The residency also provided him with an opportunity to work on canvas in a larger format.
