Artists YOU NEED to Know: Aaron Samuel Mulenga – Creating Art to Interrogate Notions of Identity, Culture, and Faith

Hi, my name is Aaron Samuel Mulenga, I am a visual artist who enjoys sculpting, painting, drawing and occasionally taking photographs. I believe that an artist must be innovative and constantly look for solutions to the various challenges that come our way (these can be good or bad challenges – either way, we are constantly thinking about the best way to tackle them). I am currently living in Zambia, and my art looks to interrogate notions of identity, culture, and faith.

Check out Aaron’s answers to the Bonus questions:

One person living or dead you would love to hang out with for a day? What would you do?

My dad, he is late but if we could spend a day together I would pass him through an adventure-filled day of skydiving, white water rafting, bungee (actually not this, for some reason I don’t find it appealing) and possibly base jumping.

What is one meal or food you could eat every day and not get tired of?

Nshima – this is Zambia’s traditional food but I love it so much.

What is place you would really like to visit?

I have a few; Morocco, Brazil, Spain, Japan, China, India. Yea I mean I would love to globe trot extensively and for an artist this is so key, meeting new people and place, so if anyone would like to host me in a different country best believe I will be there lol.

What is the most adventurous thing you ever did?

Up-to-date, I would say skydiving

Do you love your job? Why?

Currently, art is my job and my passion so yes I certainly love my job.
