Nice selection of art from artists from Rwanda and beyond, both in the gallery and in the Mille Collines hotel.

I first came across the Yego Artworks at Hotel Milles Collines where some were on display so I decided to visit the Studio. It is always nice to see artworks by artists from other cultures so in my opinion, it is worthwhile to visit.

Do not miss Yego Arts Studio while in Kigali. The art is amazing and so are the artists. There are three other art galleries in the city and each one is marvelous. I felt i was meeting Rwanda's young intelligentsia while in each gallery. Yego and the other galleries should be at the top of the go to places in... More

I had a wonderful experience at Yego Arts and purchased a beautiful painting that I can't wait to get home and hang on my wall! The manager Louis was very friendly and gracious. Of all the galleries I visited in Kigali, the art here was my favorite - I found it to be diverse in perspective and style, and that... More

When I went to visit this place, I had no idea about what was really inside, as for the first impression, i did not like the location, it was kinder hidden, reaching inside I was more than overwhelmed, from outside to inside, the creativity is just impressing.

It's an interesting little compound and worth a look around. The wall art is extremely diverse and a lot of it is pretty cool. It will appeal to a variety of tastes. However, looking in the store reveals prices above what you'll generally pay locally.

Yego was like a museum of bad art. The artists there do not appear to have had any training. It is sad to say, but I cannot suggest you spent time there.

We visited several art galleries in Kigali and this was by far the best. Several local artists exhibit there. We ended up buying several paintings, but could have bought more ( some of the collages were stunning). Our thanks to Tony - the owner and main artist- for sharing his passion with us.

Was very impressed by this art studio with paintings and handcrafts. You can see painters doing their art. Worth to take a look.

First off I'd like to admit that I am not a painter, never have been and probably never will be. Upon my visit to Yego arts I was given the opportunity to paint, at first I was skeptical about what I am capable of but soon after I was given a brush and canvas, I painted along with some of... More
