Hasssan Mukiibi was born in Kampala, Uganda. He is a specialist in printmaking, painting, and tie and dye. He works with printer’s ink, acrylics, oil, pastel, water colures and dyes. For Hassan, some central themes in his work are women and their activities. He prefers to focus on their positive impact in the social, political and economic spheres. Women are seen by many as subservient to men. Hassan disagrees with that view, and portrays women as the strong and inspiring beings they have been in his own life.
