Denis Mubiru

Denis Mubiru’s work explores the complex yet practical Kampala mini bus taxis, better known locally as “Kamunye”. He uses abstract playful, naïve paintings and imagery, to retell the interesting and exciting dramas that unfold within the taxi; petty arguments, flirting and wolokoso (local gossip) that reflect on the society of Kampala and Uganda at large. Seeking to draw the viewers’ attention to what social media and the press often ignore, he documents and interprets the more intricate aspects of life in the mini buses; the signage, religious symbolism and characters.
