An interview with graffiti artist, jobray

Artists Jobray and Sparrow in Uganda (@kibuukaphotography)

In the early 2000s, graffiti was a budding art form in Kampala. Back then it was synonymous with polymath artist Xenson, the most visible of the early graffiti artists who popularised the genre in Uganda. Today, tags and commissioned murals bloom on bare walls across the capital city, bearing the names of international and Ugandan street artists. One of these is Olego Job Alomet, alias Jobray.
