Henry Mzili Mujunga is a Ugandan artist who works in a diverse range of media to engage with African art history and traditional visual forms through a concept described as ‘indigenous expressionism’.
Mzili advocates and works to facilitate networking among contemporary African artists in order to develop relevant pan-African cultural dialogues. He is a founding member of the East African Art Group Index Mashariki, and is a member of the Pan African Circle of Artists (PACA).
In 1996 Mzili graduated from Margaret Trowel School of Industrial and Fine Art, Kampala; he also holds a Postgraduate Diploma in Education from the same university. He received the Royal Overseas League (ROSL) Art Scholarship in 2003.
Mzili has exhibited widely across East and West Africa as well as in Germany, France, the UK, and the Netherlands.
This painting is an exploration of notions of sexuality and spirituality within art.
