Happy 2010 Easter

[Olekasasi, Nairobi, Kenya]
In some cultures, eggs play an important role in Easter celebrations. The following painted ostrich egg was just recently completed as a commission.

For those who are curious about this particular craft, it can take any where from 10 days (7 hours of continuous work) to 30 days (or longer) in order to complete an egg. It involves very detailed and delicate dexterity.

Birds of East Africa Book Launch Exhibit

Many of you already know that birds are one of my favourite subjects to paint. I was honoured to be selected by John Dawson to commission 15 bird paintings for his new, highly anticipated book, A Gallery of East African Birds. Therefore I invite you all to a one week exhibit that will showcase the artwork of 6 other artists who also supplied paintings for the book.

Thank you very much for visiting my new and improved website. I was born in Uganda to Greek parents. My life has been spent mostly in East Africa (Uganda, Kenya) where I started painting as a young child. My art was influenced from living in the Bwindi Forest (also known as the Impenetrable Forest by others) for 18 glorious years.Reptile table

My short stint in Art college made me realise that this mode of “formal” education was not meeting my needs as an artist. Hence I’ve decided to take a leap of faith and create my own style, which I feel is vibrant and alive yet highlights my passion for all things relating to conservation and nature. :-)

I’m equally at home painting on cloth, ceramics, water colours, canvas, murals on tiles, and recently ostrich eggs. I like to be versatile in both my media and subject matters. As such, I’ve created many commissioned works for large corporations and hotels.

If you’d like me to create an original work of art for you, please don’t hesitate to contact me using the link above.

Finally, many thanks go out to Max for overhauling my website — using the latest web technologies (WordPress, ZenPhoto FooGallery, MySQL, HostGator, social networking, etc.) — so that I can showcase my artwork to the global village. Please visit my online gallery when you get a chance! :-)

My Exhibits

Over the past decade or so, I have taken part in 13+ art exhibitions at various art galleries, restaurants, hotels, craft shows, etc. I will try to gather some information about these past exhibits — if possible. However, please keep your eyes on this page for any news on my future exhibits. Now that I have a “new and improved” website, I will list everything relating to exhibits, projects (commissions, etc.),  press articles, and so forth on their respective pages. After all, this is the Information Age. :-)



** I will add info on previous exhibits once if I have the material to upload **
