Footnotes

  • Kakinda's inspiration comes from ancient cave painters and Egyptian artists who used the human figure and surrounding forms as symbols of spiritual, cultural and social expression.

    Kakinda's solemn, purple-headed figures speak of authority and pedagogy, their bodies are slim, angular, academic. Symbols make up the lower section of the painting as the work becomes increasingly abstract. Kakinda's colour palette however, retains a level of richness, representing a balance between the artists' creative and academic interests.

    The work reflects the artists' history as a respected and long serving Professor of Art at Makerere University. As well as teaching, Kakinda is a tireless promotor of young Ugandan talent, assisting with an ongoing network of studio spaces, resources and workshops in Uganda's growing art scene.
