Artwork

In this painting, artist James Nyika offers a dynamic watercolor painting that exhibits energy with the riders' talent and skill to make the turn. "It is an opportunity to both pass the other riders as well as to demonstrate the endurance of the horse," explains James. Similarly, James shares how this piece was an opportunity to explore a loose painting style to capture motion and effort.

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."
