"Some pictures and vantage points of architectural structures are so compelling that a hundred different stories can be told from just that one view," says artist James Nyika. "In this piece, I wanted to capture the deep shadows of the three ruined towers of Angkor Wat in Cambodia. However, they are also contextualized in their environment - a vast flat plain with palms and farms of old where they stood out as beacons of a long past time of prosperity."

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."
