About the Artist- Prince Joseph
I have known Prince Joseph since my deployment to Uganda with the Marines in 2012. His paintings were the favorite souvenirs I brought home for loved ones and we have remained in contact ever since.
Prince Joseph painted for many years as a mentor to the first artist who began to paint on Bugandan Bark Cloth. He specializes in traditional African paintings. In addition to his talents in painting, Joseph is also a historian for his tribe. When I met Prince Joseph, he gave a tour of the Kasubi Tombs to me and several other Marines and it was an incredible introduction to the history of the Bugandan Tribe.
The picture you see to the left is Joseph volunteering at a local school in Uganda. It is important to him to help keep their cultural memory alive and so he instructs school children in traditional painting.
