Artist biography 

 

Letaru is a conceptual artist based in Kampala. She experiments across collage, marbling, painting, installation and sound to create meditative works and to contemplate belonging, memory and healing as they relate to the African/Afro-diasporic postcolonial condition. 

A social scientist by training she studied a Bachelors of Social Sciences (2014) and a Masters of International Development with African studies (2019) at Sciences Po Paris both of which inform her research focused approach to art-making. Letaru is an alumna of Asiko Art School (Praia 2022) and 32 degrees East Ugandan Arts Trust (Kampala 2017) and co-founded the Afropocene Studio Lab Co-arts space in 2021.
