The opening of 35InPrint:London on Saturday 19th April oozed class with the guests who came in their numbers all captivated by Shiri Achu’s art. There were beautiful 35InPrint cupcakes, German based artist Amaka performed a live set and we had two floors of Shiri Achu Art prints on exhibit - 35 In total all at very affordable prices!

Shiri Achu Art is art inspired by Africa, colour, movement, dance! And oh boy did they love it!!
The week long exhibition at The Strand gallery saw The Mayor and Mayoress of Harrow pop by to visit the exhibition receiving a special walk through by Shiri herself. They were full of praises and encouragement; leaving a wonderful message on the visitor's book.
The closing party on Friday the 25th was as the opening, a success. More paintings bought and taken off the wall instantly, muna Sawa Muntu Valdo, the London based Cameroon Jazz guitarist, harmonica player and singer was there to lend his support and perform on the night delighting the visitors with his soulful new songs. Assorted snacks and wine were served...
Raffle prize winners Enitan Sawyerr and Anozie Anyanwu were both extremely delighted to have won signed limited edition ‘ShiriAchuArt’ prints.
