BIO

Jude Kasagga was born in 1980 in Kampala, Uganda, where he has lived and worked. At an early age, he discovered a love of creating art and small crafts.

At the age of 15, Jude had already illustrated his first book “Guluma ya guza” which was a success and became a springboard to many other job offers in the same line where he specialized on children’s books. He has since then grown to become a prolific artist and illustrator.

Most of his concepts are derived from emotions around him, the people and life in general. He loves to experiment with brush movements, collage using wax fabrics and many other media that he has discovered.

The artist holds a Diploma in Art and Design and is an art instructor to young artists at Kampala University since 2008.
