"Bright as a light!" exclaims artist James Nyika. Taking inspiration from a quietly crowded pantheon in Rome, James captures the delightful scene brightly lit under the sun. "When I arrived at this location, I found the square and the sky so beautifully lit by the light of the day. And with very few people around, you could see a lot of the bases of the columns. I wanted to capture the warmth of the sun as it evaporates any lingering dew and 'crispness' of the air."

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."
