Jak katarikawe is a Ugandan artist who first came to kenya in the 1970s after his innate artistic talents were discovered by his Makerere University professor employer who sent him to be mentored by a leading university lecturer. His whimsical storytelling style of painting, often featuring humorous romantic intrigues illustrated either elephants or rural peasants, earned him international following.
His paintings are in private and public collections all over Europe and USA as well as kenya where he has exhibited at alliance francaise , gallery watatu and Paa ya Paa. He showcases his work at @dusitd2nairobi tomorrow 27/5/17
This month we are proud to introduce @justinridler, photographer, artist and creative director as our May artist feature. His ethereal images of dancers, models and personalities say so much and yet shrouds them in mystery. He is a regular contributor to Vogue Australia and collaborates with The Australian Ballet to create beautiful images that seem to move with the dancers themselves. We are very excited to have him give us a little insight into his world and accomplishments. Enjoy! Link in bio 😉

"Our world is a very complicated place, not many things are black or white. I think grey areas are interesting and difficult. I play in that zone as I paint in terms of colors merging and reemerging, seeking redemption.”
