David Kibuuka, a professional artist with over 40 years of experience.
Renowned artist David Lumu Kibuuka is a cultural ambassador and philanthropist. His vision is to bring cultures closer through sustainable artwork by empowering youth in ways that reach beyond the obvious acquisition of sustainable art skills through mastering techniques of modern batik designs and patterns.
Born in Uganda, David developed a love of art at a very early age. He attended the Ontario College of Art (OCA), currently Ontario College of Art and Design University (OCADU). A master at fusing avant-garde art with traditional African artistry, Kibuuka pioneered the fragmentation technique. This technique uses mosaics of color and form to create designs and patterns which can be imprinted on or processed into fabrics as sustainable, marketable products for improvement of the economic and social wellbeing of youth in disparate communities worldwide. Kibuuka conducts workshops worldwide sharing his passion for art with disadvantaged youth and has donated artwork to raise funds for UNICEF, World Vision Canada for HIV/AIDS Initiative Africa, Rotary Club for clean water, and the United Negro College Fund (UNCF).
