The development of Contemporary Paintings and Sculptures by Female Artists in Kampala has only helped a few Female Artists to identify themselves as contemporary sculptors and painters. The minority Female Artists have ended up dominating the market place because they are more privileged than the majority Female Artists. These minority Female Artists are almost equal to men and have not experienced any obstacle when it comes to documentation both locally and internationally. In this research I have established the Female Artists who are contributing towards the development of Contemporary Painting and Sculpture in urban Kampala, factors hindering Female Artists in developing Contemporary Sculpture and Painting in urban Kampala, the research has further documented the minority Female Artists and how they have contributed to the development of Contemporary Sculptures and Paintings in urban Kampala Uganda. Three research questions were posed, (i). who are the up-coming Female Artists that practice Contemporary sculpture and painting in Urban Kampala Uganda? (ii). what factors affect Up-coming Female Artists in the production of Contemporary Painting and Sculpture in Urban Kampala? (ii). to what extent have the Female Artists contributed to the development of Contemporary sculpture and painting of in urban Kampala? I have investigated the questions through a vivid ethnographic account using both primary and secondary sources. Through questionnaire, field notes, one on one interviews and observations with people that mattered as far as this research was concerned. Secondary data was collected through literary sources, such as books, journals, research papers, newspapers and the internet. The findings of this research will help academic scholars, institutions of higher learning and other stake holders since it has covered and documented the politics of identity construction by female artists in the field of contemporary sculpture and painting to get a better way of promoting the girl child in Uganda.
