Farid Mahfudh was born on 8th December 1988 in Masaka Town. He graduated in 2013 with a Bachelor’s degree majoring in oil painting alongside animal anatomy at Margaret Trowel School of Industrial and Fine Art, Makerere University.
Since then he has had the opportunity to explore the wildest places of Africa. However, he has always returned to home in Uganda because for Farid, Uganda is a never-ending wellspring of inspiration.
His paintings are visual diaries, some literal and others conceptual, to reflect the pure character of the beast. What may appear as easy observation is actually much more complex. One must look beyond the obvious to realize a deeper understanding of the subject and in doing so might discover a little something about themselves.
