Paul Kintu's artistic journey is deeply rooted in his upbringing, where he was immersed in a creative environment. His passion for art began with the simple act of tracing his own shadow on the ground and crafting colourful abstract compositions by pressing flowers onto paper. These early experiences have shaped his artistic identity.

Primarily working with acrylic paint on canvas, Kintu draws inspiration from his everyday life and childhood memories, especially his strong connection to flowers. His compositions reflect personal narratives while being contextualised for contemporary audiences.

Kintu is an active member of several art associations, including the Uganda Visual Artists and Designers Association (UVADA), Kampala Art Trust, and the German Cultural Society. His art has graced galleries not only in the region but also globally, and he has established his own studio, the ANGAVU ART STUDIO, located in Gayaza, Kijjabijo, Kalagi Road.

His dedication to his craft is evident through his participation in numerous exhibitions, with over five solo exhibitions and an impressive seventy group exhibitions, both locally and internationally. Beyond his artistic pursuits, Kintu also engages in charity workshops with organisations such as Basic Needs Uganda, Kyampisi Child Care Ministry, Ssuubi Foundation, and Viva Con Agua Uganda.

Kintu's talents have not gone unnoticed; he was a recipient of the Marbati Art Challenge organised by Sadolin Paints in 2011, and his artwork has found a place in various public spaces. As a self-taught artist specialising in naive art, he creates a captivating series featuring small figures amidst a backdrop of vibrant, multicoloured roller and palette knife strokes. This series conveys a profound message that regardless of how small someone or something may seem, they have the potential to achieve greatness in life and should never be underestimated.
