Patrick Mulondo - The Artist Who Gives Life to Scrap

Young Ugandan Sculptor Featured in Northern California Galleries

On June 19th from 5pm to 7pm, the Siskiyou Arts Museum will be hosting a reception for Patrick Mulondo, a gifted young sculptor from Kampala, Uganda who is currently touring northern California. Mulondo is a graduate of Makerere University where he majored in sculpture, modeling, carving and jewelry making. His sculptures combine recycled metal scrap with casted fiberglass to give common found objects a new and extraordinary life and purpose, an approach that is unique in today’s Ugandan art scene. “This exhibition project,” according to Mulondo, “is about experimenting with the use of scrap to communicate the beauty in junk. “ Patrick Mulondo participated in the making of The Journey Monument, an art piece commemorating Uganda’s Golden Jubilee. He received a Young Achievers’ Award from the Ugandan Government in 2011. His work is on display in Ugandan and Kenyan galleries. Mulondo’s sculptures will be on display throughout the month of June at the Siskiyou Arts Museum in Dunsmuir, and the Marble Rim Gallery in Fort Jones.
