Famous Canadian Graffiti artist Monk E gives Kampala new face of paintings



By Reporter

You could have heard of him or not but his art works stand out in and around Kampala. Monk E is an international Canadian graffiti artist known for his work with prominent Uganda singers. His first artiste works were with Jose Chameleone at his then Kololo based DNA bar where he put giant paintings of Chameleone and the late Radio. He then got more gigs to do paintings of other artistes Eddy Kenzo and Bobi Wine.

Recently Monk.E started his annual world tour with over 8 countries on his booking list starting here in Uganda. Unfortunately due to Corona Virus he had to cancel the remaining of his tour and go back to Canada, but that’s not what the artist had planned for 2020 and desisted to stay in Uganda and use his inspiration to work on more of his art. Luckily for us because his first creation is a painting that talks about tradition and change. Involving the Kabaka and Ugandan scenery. He will not reveal his location but sources say he is taking time to be alone and get a lot of art done before he can travel to other parts of the world.

Recently the master graffiti artist was spotted at Legends sports bar in lugogo, painting a mural of the city Kampala itself, we’ll have to wait for bars to open to see his works.
