Brogan Mwesigwa

Brogan Aaron Mwesigwa’s (b.1997, Jinja district, lives and works in Kampala) work explores the history and psychological nuances of material by transforming discarded paper into an amorphous canvas for his stories. His artworks transfigure narratives that explore life in post -colonial Africa through figurative expression, blending his imagination with acute societal observation, to create allegorical compositions that serve as a serene yet profound commentary on reality using charcoal and oil paint on recycled paper.
Mwesigwa displayed an early inherent passion for drawing while growing up which paved the way, leading him to join art school, where he honed his skills of drawing and painting. He is currently under the mentorship of Ian Mwesiga, an accomplishedUgandan artist.
Mwesigwa graduated with a BA in Industrial & Fine Art from Makerere University. He was a Tilga Art Fund 2023, Mukumbya Musoke Art Prize 2020 semi finalist, and he has participated in exhibitions including his first solo in 2021, Art Salon 2021 and the East African Artist Connect 2nd edition 2021.
