The Artist

The Artist

Andrew Omoding (b. 1987, Uganda) lives and works in London. His sculptural forms, constructed from found material, fabric, and other macrame, are often autobiographical in nature. His early childhood in Uganda, migration to the United Kingdom as a young refugee, and subsequent life in London have all informed the intuitive, systematic, dynamic and methods he employs in the creation of his works. In his multi-media practice, Omoding’s innate conceptualization of colour, form, texture, and space are on full vibrant display.
