Kalvin Zane Rutagengwa is a self-taught painter and sculptor who discovered his artistic talent as a 6-year-old boy in Rwanda. As a member of the Tutsi tribe that was nearly eradicated in the Rwanda genocide, Rutagengwa let peace and reconciliation be his motivation during this time. He used his artistic talents to help orphans build their lives on art rather than as street beggars.
