Jjuuko was born in 1980 and is a graduate with a first class degree from Kampala University. Bursting on the art scene in 2002, the artist has quickly established himself as a force to be reckoned with and has tried to transform contemporary African art out of the craft and artifact classification by integrating both modernity and traditional concept. His work in the past involved working with different unique techniques and materials like Bark cloth painting. He still does a lot of experimentation with materials like recycled polyurethane bags, wood and metal fabrication and copper wire used on canvas.
Jjuuko has had numerous solo and group exhibitions in East Africa as well as in Europe, over the past few years.
Believing that sketching limits creativity, the artist allows his mind and hand to move freely over a canvas to create room for his imagination. The Artist is currently the Director of IVUKA arts Uganda, President of the Society of Uganda contemporary art ( SOUCA), Director and founder of GECKO art Gallery, in Uganda. Jjuuko also likes to call himself (Prince)Hood, or even by the Japanese sounding name - Nakata.
The artist resides in Uganda.
