John Baptist Sekubulwa

Sekubulwa John Baptist is a Ugandan artist born in Kisubi. He graduated from Margaret Trowel School of Industrial and Fine Arts, Makerere University. Sekubulwa’s surreal paintings and drawings are a visual commentary and critique of social, political, religious events around him and the world at large. They are intended to draw a message that provoke dialogue. 


During his residency at 32° East, Sekubulwa turned his attention to building scenes of devotion and moral corruption that pervade certain souls of the evangelical church.

Using biting humour, Sekubulwa transformed once-forgotten jerricans into mobs of desperate followers and shameful pastors while never forgetting the irony of it all.
