African art in the style of Martin Bulinya

This half term, Year 2 have been learning about Martin Bulinya. He is a very prolific Kenyan artist whose work shows caricatures of the Maasai people in a variety of stances and formations. He has a simple style, but he produces truly fun and interesting African art! Many of the paintings have very complex detailing into the material worn. His characters take dramatic poses, giving each one an effective emotion – you can almost hear some of the characters talking to each other! Take a look at some of Year 2’s creations using pencils, pastels and paints!
