Since 2012 Stacey Gillian’s sculptural work focuses around gender misconceptions and inequality.
The core of her work is very metaphorical; a spider split in half in self-conflict,
Twisted (2014); a female figure struggling to stand up,
Gender Equality (2012) and a marabou stalk attempting to fly,
She works with glass as a principle medium because it illustrates both the fragility and defiance in her personal experience as a sculptor. On completion of her works Gillian feels as if she has overcome something either physically or emotionally.
In many rural areas of Uganda, people live by traditional and conservative values, which many of restrict and deprive and oppress women of expression.
Because of this Gillian creates her sculptures with both men and women in these communities in order to create a dialogue about gender equality.
During the production of Empaako cultural Monument (2014), Gillian received lots of negative feedback and verbal abuse from local men who believed a woman was not supposed to make sculptures.
Yet in defiance to these comments she continued to work and a local radio station picked up on it. After this the men started to interact with her and support her with her work.
Gillian hopes that her work will inspire other women to be bold, assertive and defiant.

There are Paintings that stem from memory and from a somber look at the Human Condition. Paintings that are about the pleasures that crowd I upon the pessimism everywhere – and the confusion of contemporary urban life, that crowd in and refuse to be ignored. For me art is not based on a number of static concepts. It changes and extends its boundaries in response to the shifts in the intellectual, emotional and social situations of each period in time.
I would like to use my Art to define what I am about each time I paint, let it speak on its own, express ideas, thoughts, dreams, and life experiences that different individuals go through in Kampala thus empowering them to return to their true cultural Heritage.
Name: Kimera Hamuza aka Tipsy Chamberz
Work: Tipsy Arts.
Education: Diploma industrial Arts and designs.
About: I am a young creative and innovative man, born 1st February 1991.
I Started doing commercial Art in 2009 way back in highschool. I have participated in many Art festivals and exhibitions both in my country and outside my country.
For example: Laba Art festivals, Jamafest, Bayimba And many others.
I am always avoiding what other people say about me and I always look forward cause I never look back.
I live by 2 motto's i.e #creativity is priceless and les more.
A while back I did not know of it, And how it sounded like, How connected it would make me feel, How life can be changed with the slightest of moments...
I got to know even how it sounds like, and I am connected to the NALA project .
I was born 21 years back in Rubaga a division of Kampala district where is have stayed for most of my life . i started doing art way back like 13 years when i used to illustrate movies in exercise books in primary and when i joined secondary i dropped it up to form five when i was given a course combination that contained art in 2011 ever since then i have never looked back . 'ITS ONLY ONE LANGUAGE THAT THE WHOLE WORLD SPEAKS WHICH IS ART LET US SPEAK IT SO THE REST CAN LISTEN TO US " EMMA
i practice art as a social activist artist where i use my art for social causes.
i major in painting, digital and manual a sculpting, photography and drawing.
My artwork engages the viewer to rethink their reality. In my work, I try to show the world for what it truly is; a mess.
People seem to think get caught up in so much and almost forget to focus on the things that really matter.
My themes are based on questions of human emotion and the mind, purpose, race, religion and spirirtuality. These themes, I often mingle to create intriguing concepts in the different artworks and designs that I pray, will in the future, change things.
Mixed media rules in my world and much as I love digital art, traditional water colour and oil/acryllic paintings, I feel, create a more personal touch.

Hello friends of NALA.
please see Article here: Nala helps
You will surely remember the NALA Corona Art artworks by Joan Otieno from Nairobi, Kenya.
With the help of my NALA Project, the Kenyan Artist Joan Otieno sold small NALA artworks for over 400 euros. (40,000 ksh)
Many thanks to the buyers from Germany, the Netherlands and Switzerland.
Each sale ensured that everyone had enough rice and beans or corn porridge and vegetables to eat, and the Warembo Wassani Art Center continued to help underprivileged children improve their future.
Unfortunately, these small NALA artworks are still in Kenya and could not yet be sent to Germany due to Corona and high-cost transport costs.
DHL asked for an amount of 300 Euros for 6 kg of recycling art.
If you are flying from Kenya to Germany or Switzerland in the near future, please let me know.
Maybe you can bring the NALA Art package with you.
Thank you for reading.
