About the Artist: Mujale Chisebuka
As an artist, I love creating art that speaks to myself and others about life and all the things it encompasses. Beauty, culture, special moments, nature, fear, triumph, ups the downs. Life is an amazing and mysterious miracle that I can only try to attempt to understand but I love the adventure of trying to capture it and turning it into art. Learn more about Mujale.
