Henry Brian Mujunga aka Mzili was born in 1971 in Uganda.
He is a writer, painter, printmaker and conceptual artist. He has been exploring intuitive ways of reviving African art through an art movement called indigenous- expressionism.

He is also a member of the Pan African Circle of Artists (PACA) that links artists working for the integration of Africa through art.
He is cofounder of Kampala Arts Trust.
