About Yhu Kira
Yuran Obam known as Yhu Kira, is a painter, author, singer and performer, born on August 14, 1996 in Libreville in Gabon. Passionate about writing and fashion, he grew up in the city of Port-Gentil in Gabon and then came to live in France for his studies. In January 2016 he left for a two-year exchange program near Frankfurt, then 19 years old, he reconnected with his love for art, a passion that he had to abandon when he was younger, because his father did not see a future for him in this field, pushing him to follow a classical school course.
When he arrived in Belgium, he reconnected with his passion for writing, with Congolese rumba, Caribbean music, traditional Gabonese rhythms and started to play music. In 2018 he released a first project on his networks, then returns in 2020 with three new singles Seul, Tout est Noir and Ciel released in 2020. His visual universe is constantly changing, adapting to his evolution, mixing fashion, staging and Afro-futurism.
Yhu Kira created his first Styling Collection in early February 2022 "By the Power of Râ", 14 surrealist looks representing deities, angels, entities from elsewhere. It is a collection of vintage pieces entirely recycled with used canvas, paint, and full of memories accumulated during his various trips. The masterpieces are the mermaid tails that bring a symbolic message and are the signature of the collection. "By the Power of Râ" is a unisex, avant garde capsule that carries the artist's beginnings as a fashion designer.
