COLLECTABLE Works on paper.JUNE 5TH-JULY 5TH 2015

   Juliet Ezenwa Maja-Pearce was born in 1968. She graduated from the Delta State University, Abraka. She is versatile in watercolours, acrylics, oils, pastels, gouache, print-making, ceramic-sculptures and installations. This multi-media artist is constantly experimenting with materials and methods; in her own words: ‘I have delved into different media in search of how best to express my art. My primary purpose is to produce art that will remain relevant and endure.’ A native of oil-producing Delta State, she has been in the forefront of the campaign for upholding the rights of women and the girl-child in Nigeria. Her works on those themes were exhibited at the Female Genital Mutilation Exhibition in Canada, Germany, the UK and the US. She currently runs an NGO, Future-Perfect, which organises creative workshops and trainings for empowering women and young people. Her gallery, Yemaja art Gallery in Surulere Lagos, takes on students on industrial attachment and apprenticeship. She is very widely exhibited. Her recent works are a collector’s must-have. She has many solo exhibitions to her credit. She is usually found at the annual Harmattan Workshop organised by the Bruce Onobrakpeya Foundation, which takes place at Agbahra-Otor, Delta state. Migrations, her most recent solo exhibition of plates, prints and installations, took place (on August 2012) at the Nike Art Gallery in Lekki, Lagos, Nigeria.  

 The works below started out as original prints taken out of additive plastograph plates.But with the individual finishing they have received, have become (unique) collectable pieces of art sought after by collectors and dealers looking for original works on paper.
The style is a conscious infusion of the elements of traditional African art with those of pop art (especially on the colour works).
These works come from a body of works created in the fall of 2014 and printed at the Harmattan Workshop in March 2015.They are part of a limited experimental edition.They measure 40cm by 30cm each.
These works are up for the price of 300 US dollars each.This offer closes on the 6th of july2015.
