I get inspired by places with many people moving about. My favorite is to stand outside a building surrounding the Old taxi park in Kampala. Here one gets a glimpse of the bee-hive activity of people entering the taxi park and those moving out of it, not to mention the young women food vendors moving up and down. There's steps going down into the park on different corners of the place and on these, you see people bypassing each other with a few beggars on top and in the middle of the stairs, hands hanging out. On the far distance, you see taxis snaking their way into the park from different directions of the city. In the mix is the many kiosks on every corner of the park. With the noise from taxi touts calling names of taxi stages and occasional honking from taxis moving in and out of the place, this place makes my day as an artist.

In this new work I'm focusing on wildlife and elephants in particular. I have done several paintings on elephants. This one is a little more interesting as it shows part of the face, particularly, the eye. Emphasis is on a network of skin wrinkles on the face of an old matriarch or the lead cow. I did it with a modern approach making it a 'modern elephant'.


Here is a new batik I just finished this week. It shows ladies wearing the Gomasi, a traditional dress worn by women from Buganda region of Uganda. (Available for sale)


This small batik SHARING KNOWLEDGE(2010) 10"X16" , I brought together 3 characters in a conversation. I took time to unify them with the same dress code (Masai). Using the same color theme, i was successful in shading light and dark tones in the dressing and the result was stunning. This is one of my favorite batiks.
