Ugandan artist inspired to preserve culture through art after China tour

Bruno Ruganzu, a Ugandan artist dedicated to preserving the culture of the East African nation, described his 10-day tour of creation, work exhibition, and cultural exchange in China's Zhejiang Province as having an indelible memory. Back home in the central Ugandan district of Wakiso, Ruganzu seeks to implement the lessons learned. In his work studio, constructed mainly with recycled wine bottles, Ruganzu reflected on his childhood when people in his village made handicrafts from natural materials like banana fiber, clay pots and rattan baskets. These traditional practices are now being replaced by modernity. Ruganzu aims to use his painting and sculpture skills to connect art with culture and tradition.
