My Uganda- Matatatu by Jeremy Wallace

In 2002/3 I lived in Uganda and when I had time made art. This is from a series where I tried to capture the essential things that made up Uganda for me, in this case the ubiquitous Hiace matatatu’s (Minibuses).

The process involved taking a picture in 35mm, making a 6X4 print, then using this photograph as a primitive printing block, by scratching into the surface and with indirect drawing using windsor newton drawing inks, printing onto 200g Daley Rowney fine grain heavy weight paper, then hand colouring with acrylics, inks and water colour.

    A very interesting technique! Seems like something is written on the windows too!

  • thanks! the writing on the windows is meant to be people in the van.

    Just wonderful Jeremy. The work is so alive. I love the colours you use, which of course add to the strength and life, along with all the all delicious variety of marks.
