Art inspired by Africa, Colour, Movement, Dance! Shiri Achu’s art comes from everyday, unsurprising yet unexpectedly vivid moments, places. Shiri draws insight from her travels, from natural moments captured in Africa to the human form and in action. She seeks to capture the spirit of her subjects and make them come alive through form, colour, texture, tone, movement
Ever increasingly so, one of the aims of Shiri Achu’s Art is to showcase the African cultures worldwide. She finds beauty in the woman carrying her child on her back and going her way, She finds beauty in the old woman making ‘atchu’ in her dark outdoor kitchen for her grandchildren, She finds beauty in the African fabrics… etc. Shiri is also captivated by the colours of the carnival, the dance, the joy. Through her art, aims to bring this joy to homes.
