This batik shows the direction that Dominic's batik art is taking in this new year. There is going to be a lot of emphasis on detail and color variation but keeping within the trademark style of his art. This is an upgraded version of GIFTS FOR HER that he first did in 2009. The photo was taken with the batik hanging on a line after ironing out the wax.

I am a huge fan of Lukandwa Dominic's work. His art is more that a fabulous use of color and a sensitive manner of designing. He brings out the integrity and inner strength of his subjects - through that use of his own talent is the basis of the power and greatness of his work.

All My Best,

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'.


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.


This brand new batik 'AFRICAN WOMAN ' (2013) shows my fullfilled desire to escape the pain of making 'black' faces. I have always longed for figurative batik to take a centre stage in my artwork. This new year I'll have more of these and less of the 'black' empty faces. I want my characters to have a facial expression and I think with this picture finished, I'll continue to be successful.
