Art Exhibit: African Tales by Paulo Akiiki, May 5-17 2012 @ Banana Hill Art Gallery

Paulo Akiiki is a contemporary African artist-painter, and is widely exhibited both locally and internationally.

Paulo spent most of his youth in his native countryside, a vast area marked by varying bright, dry or lush green plains with dazzling sunlight and spectacular views on huge, shining lakes, light purplish blue skies, hazy hills and dark mountain ranges in the far distance. As a four-year old boy he already started scribbling and drawing on everything he saw.

Later, Paulo pursued Painting, Sculpture and Graphics at the Margaret Trowell School of Industrial and Fine Arts of the prestigious Makerere University Kampala. He successfully, and with honors, emerged with a Bachelors Degree in Industrial and Fine Arts, in 1998.

Soon after his studies, Akiiki became a productive member of the Uganda Artists Association. He registered his own business, the Ujuzi Art Studios, in his country’s capital Kampala, and has since been practicing from there.

This will be his second exhibition in Kenya, always at Banana Hill.
