Pamela Enyonu | Uganda

“I often go back to artisanal practices of weaving, plaiting, braiding, printing etc. to fill any gaps. This reinforces the relationships I share with my subjects, embedding a bit of my history in each piece”

Pamela Enyonu was born in 1985 in Kampala, Uganda where she still currently lives and works.

She studied Art and Design at the Kyambogo University Banda of Kampala, Uganda.

Her artistic career started in 2017 with a 3 months residency at 32 degrees East where she navigated the politics of identity, trauma, and healing. After her residency, she was invited to host a solo exhibition in June 2017.

Pamela’s style is inspired by stories, materials, and the process it takes to transform them into works of art. Her works present a tactile and 3-dimensional quality that richly layered textures exploring narratives on gender, identity, empowerment, and self-awareness that deals with Ugandan (African) women and their experiences. Pamela is particularly interested in the “untokenized” experiences occupying the intersection of empowerment, mental health, and identity.

She continuously engages with the different communities through collaborations, workshops, and seminars.
