Collin Sekajugo was born in Masaka, Uganda. He is a multimedia art practitioner whose art is rooted in his deep sense of empathy for the human condition. Collin Sekajugo approaches his work from a distinct, aesthetic departure point that resides in his repeated return to pop culture and the omnipresent influence exuded by the global mainstream, conversing and critiquing its many biases across visual, oral and digital cultures. Sekajugo’s artistic practice highlights a contemporaneous anthropological reversal of this mainstream culture through the lens of a decidedly African sense for irreverence and play on the ad-hoc.
Along Acaye Kerunen, Collin Sekajugo was chosen to be one of the firsts artist to represent his country in the first ever Ugandan pavilion at the 59th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia 2022.
