FRIDAY 22 MAY- 12 JUNE 2015. OPENING RECEPTION FRIDAY 6PM.
Sanaa Gateja is an exceptional artist, jeweler and has been nicknamed ‘The Bead King’ in his native Uganda. He derives this name from being the inventor of beads made from recycled paper which he uses to create pieces of various designs and composition.
As an artist his work ethic and preference for recycled materials suite the global consciousness of present times which highly regard the environment and its preservation. Quite ironical given he started out as an artist in the 60s!
Sanaa’s artwork could be described as mixed-media experimental abstract art. His pieces emphasize use of beads, bark cloth and sometimes raffia to depict different scenes that he has encountered.
He says, “Life is a journey with a purpose. The message I bring is visually African. The themes I paint are universally human. Dealing with the materials that guide me, I talk with you, the observer. We share the energy within us provoked by Art”.
