Born (1992) and raised in Kampala, Uganda with an education from Kyambogo University.

Odur is the winner of the Mukumbya Musoke Art Prize 2020 and a recipient of the Prince Claus Seed Award.

He mainly uses aluminum printing plates, copper wires and acrylics. He seeks to tackle his ideas from different vantage points that may reveal themselves as sculpture, installation, painting and performance. He vividly expresses the themes and narratives in the complexities of social-political interactions and their influence in the contemporary world.

Aluminum was one of the materials he interacted with in his childhood in form of scrap that fetched him some money to acquire toys for himself an experience that has clearly influenced and shaped the nature of his practice as a contemporary artist. The artist seeks to conquer aluminum as a medium by exploring its possibilities, one technique at a time.

The material has been part of him though serving a different purpose rather than creating art – from a means to earn a little extra money as a child, a platform of self-expression was brought to life.
