Martin K. Bulinya was born on July 21, 1961 in a village called Moiben near Eldoret, Kenya.  Encouraged by his older brothers, Bulinya began drawing in charcoal and pencil as a young boy, has since exhibited his paintings and drawings in Nairobi, Kenya.  He studied at the design department of the University of Nairobi.   Bulinya has worked as freelance illustrator for the Kenya Times and True Love magazine, as well as working for the Kenya Broadcasting Cooperation (KBC) as stage and scene designer.

Bulinya is a very prolific artist who usually paints caricatures of the Maasai people.   He used vibrant colors in broad brush strokes in his earlier works, or paints with fine brushes in minute details in his latest works.   He makes his art affordable by painting on hard paperboard.
