This batik was inspired by Kalerwe market, one of the busiest fresh crop markets that are dotted around Kampala, the capital city of Uganda. I spent over 7 years passing this market on my way to school and I can now appreciate the influence this place has had on my work. This influence is evident in the conversational appearance of my characters. Before you enter into the market, what you hear is one deafening noise but this is deceptive. As you go through the market, you begin to hear individual conversations mostly on bargaining and gossiping, everyone is talking to another. I always strive to portray these interesting scenarios in my batik art.
