Quotes From MARTIN BULINYA
About His Tribal African Artwork
Martin Bulinya is a fine man, eager to please and a veteran in the African art painting circles of Kenya. The joy behind his African paintings for sale are a testament for the life he enjoys happily as an artist.
Martin Bulinya's African artwork about the Maasai tribe has universal appeal across East Africa. The beauty of Martin's African art paintings is not only in its detailed emotion and clothes design, but in the marketing of the paintings Bulinya employs himself. His work is just all over Nairobi, the capital city, and virtually everybody loves it! In fact, it is safe to say that Martin's original African paintings are probably the most seen all over Nairobi's galleries, events, and shops. He really gets around!
We asked Martin why he has made so much contemporary African art. He told us that they have been made over the years. "For a long time, I used to paint, but I never used to sell. When the market accepted my art, I sold a lot and continue to do so. So I paint all the time."
We also asked Martin Bulinya to describe his genius for being an African painter. He said, "Art is an interest on some level to most people, but maybe some of us see things more deeper than others and then they have the ability now to try to portray them in a particular medium. So I think there is a kind of mixture of things when it comes to art, whether it is in language, music, drama, or the visual. I am sure even you are an artist in one of these things. Any form of art is a talent distributed to us as humans once we discover it within ourselves."
Martin, most of all, wants people to know this about his African fine art: "If you look at my art's colors, its themes, and characters poise, they bring joy to most people. I like painting images that give hope to life. I rarely paint the negative, because I want to give people hope."
The paintings you see on Martin Bulinya's three pages of our African art paintings gallery are mostly of the Maasai tribe among their village, sometimes with their huts and cows. The characters are all in a great variety of poses and stances. If you take a larger look at the details you can see on most paintings, a sparkling style exemplified in the clothing of each Maasai character. These sparkles are drawn in decorative shapes and give an animated look to the clothing the Maasai feature.
