Spanish painter Maria Mari Murga presents the pieces of her series Painting Mindanao at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS). The exhibition is part of the wider program “Mindanao: Cartographies of History, Identity and Representation”, which will take place the first weekend of July.
María Marí Murga is a Spanish Filipina award winning artist currently established in London. María was trained in Florence, Italy, where she specialised in Renaissance Painting techniques. Her vibrant palette of colours is a testimonial of her Mindanao origins. Orient and Occident are brought together under Murga´s life vision. She has exhibited at international venues, which have been extremely well received. She has showcased her artwork at The Annigonni Museum in Florence, Petley’s Gallery in Mayfair, or The Derwent Art Prize. Her work has been awarded by prestigious Art Institutions such as The Royal Society of British Artists, The de Laszlo Foundation and The Pastel Society at The Mall Galleries in London.
