Artist Goia Mujalli, winner of the Ashurst Emerging Artist Prize Rich Mix East London Award 2018 will show a solo exhibition of her recent paintings which take influence from the rhythm, colour and vibrancy of the world around her, and so drawing a parallel with the new habitat of her works, in the centre of the creative hub that is East London. Her work explores ideas of cultural and geographic identity through painting as she investigates paint on the surface and calls attention to the materiality of her works. Drawing from her past in Rio de Janeiro, these ideas are investigated through abstract explorations of colour, transparency, movement and erasure, using brush marks as motifs and exploring themes of ephemerality and doubt. The exhibition is curated by Art Prize Judge Aindrea Emelife – a prolific upcoming curator, art critic, writer and presenter. Aindrea is committed to discovering and supporting the next generation of emerging artists find their voice.
The Ashurst Emerging Artist Prize Rich Mix East London Award 2018 aims to highlight not only the Emerging Artist who wins but celebrate East London as the area both Rich Mix and Ashurst inhabit.
