Jus Like Music: Tell it to us straight; who are you, where are you from and what do you do?
Magda Kaggwa: My name is Magda Kaggwa and I’m from a lot of different places, but right now I suppose you could say south east London. I’m an illustrator, printmaker and general visual artist.
JLM: Why do you do what you do, Magda?
MK: I wish there was a profound reason as to why I got into art, but it’s just what I’ve always done.
JLM: So, what’s new in the world of Magda Kaggwa?
JLM: Where do you hope to go with your art?
MK: Aside from a steady freelance career, I want to continue exploring the physiological boundaries of the human body and challenge sociological attitudes towards mental health.
JLM: With regards to music, what sort of stuff are you into?
MK: Pretty much everything. Right now I’m listening to a lot of soul and experimental hip-hop.
JLM: And lastly, can you tell me about the track you’ve chosen to include with this article?
MK: I’ve chosen The U.N. Plan by Shafiq Husayn from the En-A-Free-Ka album. I love it because it’s uncategorisable greatness, pure creativity!
