Lukwago

Born in Kampala in 1981, Lukwago studied Art and Design at Kyambogo University and graduated in 2004. His love for merging art forms to create unique pieces that people can relate to through experimentation gave birth to FEK FEK art, which is the name for this very specific style which he describes as borrowing elements of various artistic genres including graffiti, cartoon illustration and print making. A reoccurring element in Lukwago’s paintings is the eye, which he stylizes to create different moods and stories. To him the eye serves as an instrument of individualization. The creation of a painting feels like an adventure for Lukwago, which evolves during the process, with colour being an important element of his unique style.
