Birungi Kawooya is the artist behind BirungiDesign.
Unable to find bespoke artwork that reflected her love of African design, she began to create artwork featuring her favourite African animals and stylised portraits of her family and friends. Birungi was overjoyed by the positive response and to her surprise, she started to receive commissions for bespoke pieces of art and BirungiDesign was born.
Birungi is a self-taught paper cut artist and creates original artwork by pairing paper silhouettes with bold African print fabric. She is inspired by her culture and is proud to showcase the beauty of Black people through her Afro-portraiture.
