"Ominous is the word that comes to mind when contemplating this scene," says artist James Nyika. "The beach where this was taken was at the Indian Ocean near the town of Diani in Kenya. It is as beautiful as it is open and inviting. I captured a moment at low tide where we can see the dark clouds of an approaching storm. It is wonderfully contrasted with the warm, sunlit sands—a fleeting moment of joy before the storm!"

James Nyika

Upper Marlboro, Maryland

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."
