the late Maria Naita

Her work is mainly figurative, inspired by her immediate environment, be it, social, economic, religious or even political. The female form takes the centre part, the African woman being her favorite theme.

Basing on her experience; onto canvas, and in wood and metal, she presents life through the “eyes” of an African working woman, mother, wife and as human being in this era, embedded in the a belief that: “there is no better way of showcasing a society’s heritage and culture, or of communicating one’s inner most being than through Art.”
