Patrick Seruwu

Patrick Seruwu is a self-taught Ugandan artist currently living in Johannesburg. Born in Kampala, Uganda. Talented, lauded and widely exhibited artist at over twenty exhibitions throughout the world. A self-taught artist with five years of experience of painting and drawing intricate paintings and drawing depicting a variety of themes including the struggles, suffering, strength and triumphs of African women. The recipient of a 2019 Johannes Stegmann Mentorship Programme sponsored by Lizamore & Associates Gallery, Patrick Seruwu’s first Solo exhibition opened at the gallery on November 1st, 2020.

My work is about the strength of woman, capturing moments of their daily lives. In a special way it acknowledges the different attributes I always see in my mother. I use charcoal drawing and acrylic painting on canvas, applied in the form of a wash. The washes mimic the constant wish that, some women have to wash away certain experiences they have undergone in their lives. I chose deliberately to wash the canvas and allowing the paint to drip as a metaphor for the women’s tears of pain but also their tears of joy and success. My choice of colour, sepia or pink. This is both a reflection of time, that is needed for healing, as well as to portray the tension of their daily lives.
