Shiri Achu’s art comes from everyday,
unsurprising yet unexpectedly vivid moments, times, places and objects. She
seeks to capture the spirit of her subjects and make them come alive through
form, colour, texture and tone. She draws insight from her travels but in
general her inspiration is very broad. From natural moments captured in Africa
to still objects, the human form to the human in action; etc
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 lady who makes here ‘achu’ in her dark
outdoor kitchen for her grandchildren, She finds beauty in the African fabrics,
