Remmy Sserwadda | Uganda

“I am trying to show the real Africa not the media version as a war zone or disease infested. That this is how Africa is organised socially; a loving continent. Africa is so much love to us and our neighbours. Using the four forms of love to preach togetherness, unity and one love.”

Remmy was born in 1994 in Kampala, Uganda, where he currently lives and works.

Sserwadda graduated with a high school certificate of education. He started working in 2017 as a part time artist and then, in 2019 decided to become a full time one through the national art scene. Hence, he started his career with a group exhibition called Afriart that year.

In 2020 he won a solo exhibition at Xenson art space (postponed to 2021 due to the pandemic situation). 

When he paints, he is inspired by the love for cultural traditions of his country and in Dutch wax, he represents the African contemporary youth despite the chronological changes and western influence of its culture.

He uses the people he is surrounded by as models to reflect his thoughts and his daily life.
