Audrick Manirambona is a young drawer and painter. He was trained in serigraphy, model, sculpture and painting at the Secondary Technical School of Art (Ecole Technique Secondaire d’Arts-ETSA) in Gitega. In 2017, after completing his studies, he founded the Power Talent Company, which brings together other young visual artists. In 2019, he got a job as a model artist at AIME HOME ART. Today, as he asserts, he is making a living from his art.

A difficult start

As is the case for most children, Audrick Manirambona was interested in drawing when he was still a child. He didn’t throw in the towel. By practicing drawing on pieces of paper with his pencil, he improves his drawing skills until he decides to go on his studies in the art school after the lower secondary school.

In 2013, Audrick was looking for information about the Secondary Technical School of Art (Ecole Technique Secondaire d’Arts-ETSA) in Gitega. Fortunately, his cousin, who was studying at the Ecole Normale des Filles (ENF) in Gitega, close to ETSA, gives him the necessary information. “I wanted to know what they were studying at this art school as long as I would like to go deeper into the drawing that was very important to me. Miraculously, I was lucky enough to be admitted to this school”, he says.

At the art school, the artist he was already, Audrick will study screen printing, model, sculpture and painting, which will allow him to sharpen his skills and exploit his talent well. “At the end of my studies at the school of art in Gitega, I focused on the artistic field,” he confides.

Everything is the fruit of passion!

In 2017, this young artist brings together other young visual artists and creates Power Talent Company to work in synergy. Today, Audrick is delighted. “It’s art that helps me pay the rent, the food and everything I need”, he reveals.

Audrick Manirambona explains how he sets the prices for his paintings. “I sell my paintings at BIF 50,000 and more, and the price of my paintings depends on their size, and I also take into account the technique and the materials used,” he explains.

The young artist deplores that he is dealing with problems related to the lack of materials and customers. “I’m trying to find possible ways to overcome them valiantly.”
