Amsa Yaro is a self-taught mixed media artist. Yaro is a Mass communication graduate from the University of Maiduguri. She started off designing jewellery which has led her into the wonderful journey of the arts.
Using sculpture and mixed media, she has created works that stem from the inspiration she gathers from the culture of her home country Nigeria, Television and the environment. Her choice of paper as a medium came from observing the versatility of paper and how it can be used in different forms such as clay and manipulated as fabric.
Yaro has participated in numerous art projects in her current location (London) and in Ontario (Canada). Some of the projects include Sunfest Music Festival, Home County Festival and Earth Day Pop Up Market. She was also part of the 2017 London Culture Days London, and in Ontario, where she exhibited her artwork titled “Nothing New Under The Sun”.
Yaro spends a lot of time learning other techniques and mediums which she incorporates into her works.
