Name: Collin Sekajugo
Home Town: Masaka
A painter by profession, Sekajugo's own work explores how light, shadow, color and texture interacts to make his subject rise "off the canvas". His artwork holds the distinction of being displayed in various public and corporate collections, and is featured both at Meredith Laing Studios (Bel Air, California) and the prestigious Gallery Watatu (Nairobi, Kenya). Sekajugo credits a large part of his success to the opportunities he has had to work alongside other professional artists; and now that he has successfully "come of age" in the art world, he is helping others do the same.
