Mugisha Gislain who is very gifted in art is now in an international art competition with various artists around the world. Mugisha wants Rwandans to vote for him to get a chance and win the High Art Competition.
Mugisha named his work of art 'Hope’ or ‘Angel Within 1’. While explaining this name, he said “my work of art in this competition is called ‘Hope’ or ‘Angel Within 1’ .This work of art displays a child laughing, his face splashed with water. The reason of this name ‘Hope’ is that even though people fear cold water, I compared that water with cannabis which many take as a drug while this plant heals many illnesses.”
Mugisha's work of art
Some of them get hope in it whereas other take it as to escape their problem (those are wrong because like technology, which is the topic of this year,i t can help someone to develop ,while it can ruin another’s better future . So both technology and cannabis have positive and negative impact , it can make you laugh for real , or make you laugh involuntarily without happiness"
This is the work of art he drew for INYARWANDA
