Donald Wasswa

Ugandan 1984- 

Donald Wasswa’s work encourages conversations about the future of humankind looking at the influence of science and technology in modern societies. He studies the process of transformation, with his primary focus on humans versus a given environment, social interactions, and the nature of communication involved. Wasswa uses actual events to influence his research, which rely on spontaneous encounters with natural or found objects. These objects are carriers of memories of places that he claims as art materials. The objects later suffer various forms of interference by carving, assembling, and arranging, which result into sculptures, 3D paintings, and, at times, installations. Wasswa imagines the secret lives of human-made objects and how they determine the future of humans.

A multidisciplinary artist, Wasswa studied Sculpture at Kyambogo University. His practice has evolved to encompass sculpture, painting, and performance. He was the 2016 recipient of the Merit Award in the Absa L’Atelier competition. He has participated in solo and group exhibitions in Uganda and abroad, including: Zikunta, Kampala, 2016; To Live is to Become, Afriart Gallery, Kampala, 2017; Degenerative Evolution of the Living, Absa Art Gallery, Johannesburg in 2018. In 2019, Wasswa was one of the selected artists for Ouagadougou Sculpture Biennial and showed at 1-54 and a group exhibition with Circle at Cromwell Place in 2021. He is currently based in Kampala where he is the founder/proprietor of Artpunch Studio.
