We came across this artist while scrolling through Instagram, and something about his work stood out to us. His use of flowers and the poetry that formed his captions piqued our interest. As is customary, we wanted to learn more about Kriss and his art.

I am Kriss Munsya; I’m a Belgian visual artist. I was born in the Congo (DRC) and my parents moved to Belgium when I was 3 years old. I grew up in Brussels and moved to Vancouver in January 2019.

I don’t really define myself as a photographer. I would rather go with a visual artist. Because I combine skills from graphic design, video, and photography at the same time.

Why are flowers predominantly used in your photos? What significance do they have to your art?
