Fred Mutebi

Here is a link to a video on the techiques of Ugandan Artist Fred Mutebi.
I had the pleasure of meeting Fred Mutebi when he came as a Rhodes Scholar to teach at Christian Brother University in Memphis. His prints are vibrant and beautiful. A recurring motif is the shared eye, which symbolizes the village spirit, where the individual is a part of the whole. He believes that industrialized nations can learn a lot about simplicity and happiness from people who live in traditional villages. His method of print making is unique and this video follows all the details of his work.
