WEEKLY ARTIST SHOW AT RAILWAY YARD NEAR MUKWANO INDUSTRIES

This is an initiative that has been going on for 3 years whereby artists from all over Uganda congregate and display their work. They range from basketry, jewelery, batik, drum makers, wood carvers and many others. This takes place every Friday of the week, so if you want to talk to artists and perhaps buy directly from them, this is the place to be every Friday. I also have a stall there displaying all my latest paintings and i offer a free interesting explanation of how i do my work as well as talking to you about my inspirations. The photo below shows part of my stall.

ELEPHANT BATIK ART

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'.

USING SAME COLOR THEME TO SHOW UNITY

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.
