Master graffiti artist Monk.E aka David Yergeau who has painted murals allover Kampala is stuck in the country with no way of going back home after the closure of Airports and boarders allover the world.

According to info Blizz Uganda has received, Monk. E was spotted at Legends sports bar in lugogo painting a mural of the city Kampala itself.

He is well Known for his works with Eddy Kenzo, Bobi Wine, Chameleone, and of-course the world famous Radio Mowzey Radio wall painting at DNA lounge.

Recently Monk.E started his annual world tour with over 8 countries on his booking list starting here in Uganda but unfortunately due to Corona Virus he had to cancel the remaining of his tour and go back to Canada, but that’s not what the artist had planned for 2020 and desisted to stay in Uganda and use his inspiration to work on more of his art.

Luckily for us because his first creation is a painting that talks about tradition and change. Involving the Kabaka and Ugandan scenery.  He will not reveal his location but sources say he is taking time to be alone and get a lot of art done before he can travel to other parts of the world.
