Bora Sylvie is a visual artist and designer who lives and works in Kigali, Rwanda. She started drawing at the age of 7. Sylvie attended Ecole d’Art de Nyundo in Graphic Arts where after obtaining her high school diploma, she decided to concentrate fulltime on creating art. Her works explore and challenge society’s toxic behaviors that belittle the rights and value of black women both traditionally and in the modern era. The concept of her works revolves around creatures that are displayed with less known details and brought to life in a constantly evolving creative process. Sylvie works and seeks to create a bridge between the arts and life.
