"The Amboseli National Park is an amazing biome filled with all manner of amazing wildlife," says artist James Nyika. In this impressionist landscape, James captures the iconic Acacia tree that grows across the African savannah. "This picture tries to convey the relative sizes of mountains, trees, and animals, and the harmony in which they exist in this wild country."

Artist James Nyika paints the glowing atmosphere of cities across the world. As a child growing up in Kenya, he found art materials at the student bookshop and also borrowed just about every art history volume from the British Council library in Nairobi. "I checked out the same books over and over just to stare at the art, to try and understand how it was created," says James. With family encouragement to study engineering, James moved to the U.S. and immersed himself in science studies at Boston University. Several years after embarking on a tech career, he set a goal to create at least one painting a week, never throwing away any works and learning as much as possible in his off hours. Today, James still balances his full-time career designing large software systems with his prolific output as a painter. "Painting is a great antidote to the regularity of a computing profession and I really value it for the uncertainty that it brings - something frowned upon when writing code."
