 Ronald Kerango

Ugandan artist commonly known as "Ro" on the local art scene.
Born in 1984,'Ro' started showing interest in art at an early age and the most memorable was when he made a portrait of pope John Paul II during his visit to Uganda in 1993.Between 2004 and 2007,he studied Art at the Margaret Trowel School of industrial and Fine Arts at Makerere University in Kampala where he attained a Bachelors degree.
although he majored in sculpture at the art school,most of his art career has been dominated by mixed media painting.
His art career started while he was still a student artist in Makerere University where he showed mainly at Tulifanya Art gallery and Afriart art gallery in Kampala participating in numerous exhibitions.
Ro is an active member of the Artist association in Uganda(UVADA) where he has served in various capacities.
He has also contributed massively towards charity through his art with projects like "art for Abato", an annual charity show and auction in the past decade which raised funds for a children's shelter in Kampala but most recently he has worked with ViVa con Agua, an organisation which deals with wash and sanitation awareness through art, music and soccer.
He is currently a freelance artist who lives and works in Kampala,Uganda and has shown his works extensively within east Africa and beyond. 
Ro's current body of work seeks to interrogate the complex relationship between man and his surrounding with climate change being the focal point of interest.."as we continue to deplete resources around us we leave a dangerous trail which has impacted our lives negatively".his sculptures in particular explore the need to tackle climate change on all levels of society with social- economical and environmental issues in mind. "temperatures are raising,water levels keep raising as well,global inequalities keep going up and the discussions need to get rolling with positive results if we are to make a sustainable living".
he draws a lot of inspiration from the African Savannah which is home to many endangered species and these are greatly impacted by climate change.
