Academic Pursuits at Ecole d'art de Nyundo

Iranzi's journey led him to Ecole d'art de Nyundo, Rwanda, where he honed his artistic skills and found his unique voice.

Western Art Joins African Contemporary Art

While initially drawn to landscapes, Iranzi encountered challenges interpreting their narratives, prompting him to use his African experience in a harmonious synthesis of new characters and landscapes set in the American West.

Ezra Iranzi's Under Pink Skies
Under pink skies wide and bold,
A story of the modern, and the old.
A cowboy stands, his truck beside,
In the distance, a white horse to ride.

The orange moon begins to rise,
In a monochrome pink, a sweet surprise.
Western culture, alive and well,
In this scene, many stories to tell.

From the artist; "The collection is called, "New West". I decided on this name because it depicts the lives of modern cowboys in a contemporary setting, to cherish the culture and keep it alive. There are five works presently, and each speaks its message though they're in the same collection.

My current projects focus on a modern perspective of the legendary American West, placing famous cowboy archetypes into contemporary landscapes."
