Moses Turahirwa shares a personal story of exploration and perseverance through Ishuri, meaning School. Each piece was designed using daring hues and shapes serving as a metaphor for the beauty found in diversity. Ishuri is an ode to individuality, to the students of life, to the misfits, whom society labels strange. Ishuri celebrates those brave enough to carve out their own path in life and create their own adventures.
