This collaboration highlights two of the Ugandan artist’s major works following his participation at the 59th Venice Biennale in which he is representing the award-winning Uganda national pavilion. In line with the theme of his joint exhibition ‘Radiance, they Dream in Time’ with fellow artist Acaye Kerunen, LITO makes available 20 limited edition prints of Collin Sekajugo’s works, ‘Stock image 001 - Boy in wheelchair’ and 35 limited edition prints of ‘Stock image 012 - Smiling girl eating salad’.
Collin Sekajugo was born in Masaka Uganda, in 1980. He is a multimedia art practitioner whose art is rooted in his deep sense of empathy for the human condition.
Sekajugo’s artwork examines and questions the notion of personal identity in a self-absorbed modernism, re-imagining subjects from visual, oral, and digital culture, shifting and evolving into new subjects and citizens.
The technique of using contemporary consumer materials in his work creates a dialogue between the arts of drawing, collage, photography, and overprinted surfaces, enabling the multiple cultural sources to be relatable while portraying compelling realities.
His work is part of many permanent collections including the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art in Washington, DC, as well as notable private and corporate collections in the US, Europe, Africa and Asia.
