Jjuuko Hoods is a graduate with a first-class honours degree from Kampala University and currently the Director of Ghecko Art Gallery in Uganda and President of the Art Society of Uganda. Jjuuko Hoods has succeeded in transforming contemporary African art out of the craft and Artifact classification by integrating both modern and traditional concepts.

Hoods is an icon of the contemporary artists' generation who are African at heart with a highly motivated goal of changing the face of Ugandan art and Africa at large. Very famous for his unique technique of Barkcloth painting since 2000, he has managed to expand his scope of experiments by venturing into media like recycled polythene, cityscapes, bugs, wood and metal fabrication, and copper wire used on canvas.
