Women dressed in brightly colored kangas, steadfastly trekking for miles, large food baskets and water pots perched on their heads, determined to quench the hunger and thirst of children and husbands. This is just one of hundreds of scenes David Kibuuka depicts with his expert use of oils, acrylics, watercolors, pencil, and mixed media.
Collectors of his art include basketball great Shaquille O'Neal, boxing legend Lennox Lewis, Pop and R & B icon Dionne Warwick, movie and TV actress, dancer and Oscars' choreographer Debbie Allen.
David Kibuuka is one of the founding fathers of the modern art movement in East Africa. His development of a technique called “fragmentation”, coupled with his expert use of oils, acrylics, watercolors, pencil, and mixed media, on both canvas and fabrics; has distinguished him as a groundbreaking artist.
