Enoch Mukiibi was born in Kampala in 1975 and is one of nine siblings. His talent as an artist has earned him recognition both in Uganda and abroad. For example, Aidchild, a charity organisation that cares for orphans with HIV/AIDS, named Enoch as their Artist of the Year in 2005 and 2007.
Enoch is a free-style painter who uses oils, acrylics, and watercolours. He paints with brushes, palette knives, and his bare fingers in order to create vibrant, thick-layered strokes. Taking his inspiration from music and movies, amongst other things, Enoch’s work often centres on day-to-day activities in rural Africa. His paintings include semi-abstract depictions of children, mothers, clothes, and animals.
Enoch’s aim is to continue painting and learning about art. He hopes to use his talents to support his young family, and ensure that his artwork continues to be appreciated for reflecting humanity and society.
