In 1983, Kibuuka immigrated to Canada to finish his studies at the Ontario College of Art and Design.
Over the past 20 years, he has owned and operated art galleries in Toronto and Los Angeles. His loyal clientele consists of collectors from the business, sports and entertainment communities.
Kibuuka’s humanitarian efforts have also supported a worldwide fundraising effort by UNICEF from 1990-1993. Four of Kibuuka’s images decorated four greeting cards that were sold worldwide to benefit their Children’s Foundation. In 2005, a collaboration between World Vision Canada, Artistic Canada, and Kibuuka was formed to produce posters using Kibuuka’s images for the purpose of raising money to benefit the “Hope initiative”, which provides prevention, care and advocacy programs for children and those affected by the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Africa. Kibuuka has also worked with Rotary club – Muyenga to fundraise for clean water in Villages in Uganda (East Africa).
His virtual gallery at www.zimbecollectioninteriors.com gives Kibuuka the time to follow his passion, teaching Modern Batik Art Technique to youth in communities’ outreach programs. His workshops have been held in the USA, Canada, Africa, Europe, and in several Caribbean countries.
