Katumba simon peter is my name. A ugandan visual artist with a primary medium of painting. I was raised in a family with strong religious and traditional cultural values and this set the foundations for who I am as an artist. I began to gain an artistic direction and subject focus whilst studying commercial industrial art and design at Nkumba University.
The subject matters are cultural, religious, social development in the Ugandan context and how western influence has caused these to alter. Bold use of colour is a key component in creating the concepts of which my work is based upon.
