Henry Mzili Mujunga

Henry Mzili Mujunga is a Ugandan-born painter, printmaker and writer. He has been exploring intuitive ways of reviving African art through an art movement called indigenous expressionism. He strongly advocates the importance of networking amongst contemporary African artists in order to share their culture and create an interesting dialogue with the art being produced globally.

Mzili is a founding member of the East African Art Group Index Mashariki, which seeks to re-establish relevancy for art in the local community by propagating indigenous-expressionism. He is also a member of the Pan African Circle of Artists (PACA) that links artists working for the integration of Africa through art.

He is cofounder of Kampala Arts Trust and the Online Visual arts Journal Start Journal of Arts and Culture.

Mzili is a winner of the Royal Overseas League (ROSL) Art Scholarship 2003 and has exhibited in galleries in Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Nigeria, Togo, Benin, Burkina Faso, Mali, Ghana, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, and the Netherlands. He works at R.I.S.U in Kampala as an art teacher.
