Cliff Kibuuka – Ggaba boats series ii (2019)
Cliff Kibuuka – Ggaba boats series ii (2019). Kibuuka’s art is a documentation of Kampala city with its diverse character that is symbolic of a metropolis in these contemporary times. The artist paints the shanty clustered settlements, rusty roofs in the foreground and sometimes the permanent posh structures in the background to illustrate the legendary order and chaos that so much defines the capital. His recent paintings are prevalent with an almost magical aura characterized with the inclusion of the subject of cloud formation. According to the artist, this metaphorical showcase is a rejoinder to the subject of documentation of the unique identity of the city – inclusive of any historical space- that is subject to now varied changes: the increased urbanization, new landscape designs and the rapid change in climate.
