Benjamin Atwom

Atwom Benjamin, born in 1996, is a Ugandan multimedia artist. He is a self-taught artist that works in different media to make drawings, paintings, prints, photographs, and installations that are a commentary on social disparities – especially by juxtaposing mundane objects and situations to provoke thought and conversation and look at ‘everyday’ things with new eyes. Atwom was passionate about art as a child but he was drawn to create art more extensively later – which, for his circles, came as an unlikely yet unsurprising turn. He draws inspiration to create from personal experiences and of others – the little things, the ones we usually see overlook. His practice is only but an attempt to bridge the gap between art and the immediate society that he feels a part of and they part of his experience.
