Felix Magima

Uganda

Style: Semi-Abstract

Medium: Acrylic on Canvas

Fun Fact: Such an art form is also rooted in the caricature and parody of the recent decades, which have seen visual artists struggle with representing their commentary due to a fear of the governments in place.

This voice has come to translate into a very interesting—although sometimes childish-looking—visual language which dominates the batik form, characterized by two-dimensional human figures, animals, and the very stereotypical African village and “African sunset”.

Quote:

“One time I was dating this (Norwegian) girl, and she said that she didn’t want to have children. And I had to ask myself what now? Maybe I need to find a way out of this (relationship)!”
