Born in 1980 in Masaka, to a Ugandan father and a Rwandese mother, Collin Sekajugo is an artist whose artistic practice is rooted in the community. Although he did not study art at school, in 2006 Sekajugo went on a study tour to several African countries that exposed him to new ideas of art-making.
A multi-media artist, Sekajugo works on the subject of identity situating it in his locale. His artworks explore issues of social, cultural, economic and political identity within a global context. His technique of recycling locally sourced material like Polypropylene bags is a response to the inclusion of contemporary consumer materials in his art.
He has shown at Smithsonian National Museum of African Art, Cape Town Art Fair 2018, Art X Lagos 2018 and Young Guns 2018 at Sulger-Buel Lovell Gallery, among others.
