Lucki Mutebi was born in Riruta in Nairobi. Discovering his interest in art at a young age Mutebi began painting to give form to feelings that moved him, and later on, zeroing in on social and political disorders and themes of everyday life. A chance meeting with fellow artist, Shine Tani, led to the two spending time together, with Mutebi learning from Tani, himself a self-taught painter. This collaboration would eventually lead to the two being the founding members of Banana Hill Art Studio. Mutebi currently lives and works in Kampala, Uganda.
