Nicholas Sironka, a former Fulbright scholar, was born in Narok, in the Rift Valley province of Kenya. Sironka teaches the techniques and history of Batik art, along with an understanding of traditional Maasai culture.
Through his artwork, Sironka is preserving the wisdom and the knowledge of Maasai traditions.
Although Batik is not of African origin, its roots as an indigenous fabric art are closely aligned with the spirit of simplicity and unity that Sironka is sharing with the world.
As a Maasai, Sironka is determined to portray his people's culture truthfully, with dignity and beauty.
