Project Description

Biography:

Mugalu is a hard-working, self taught artist whose work beautifully honors Uganda and her people.  We were instantly captivated by his color palette, subject matter and contemporary vernacular.  Here is what others have said about him:

“…he’s a truly African artist in the sense that his concerns and subject matters are reflected in the people he studies so ardently…With genuinely concerned artists like Mugalu on their side, the future looks bright, not just for Kampala’s art scene but for it’s people as well.” African Woman Issue 14

“Edison Mugalu is among the new crop of young and talented artists that are currently driving the wheel of Ugandan art.” Nathan Kiwere in Ugandalink, 25 April 2007

“It’s amazing how a simple brush can awaken deep seated emotions…. conjure a sense of realism, play on the psyche of the observer. This typifies the works of upcoming painter, Edison Mugalu.” The Weekly Observer, 6 April 2006
