It is a privilege to present in my new Artist Watch feature at Escape Into Life the work of emerging artist Patrick Seruwu, originally from Kampala, Uganda, and currently residing and working in Johannesburg, South Africa.

A self-taught artist, Patrick has been drawing with charcoal and painting with acrylics for a mere two years. Inspired by ancient Greek and Roman figures and in celebration and honor of his mother, he aims to portray both the truth and the strength of women at various moments in their daily lives.

Today's Artist Watch column showcases eight of Patrick's paintings and includes his Artist Statement, a brief biography, and links to his social media sites. Well-received by the global art community in Johannesburg, Patrick is preparing for his first solo exhibition in February 2020.
