Notes

Born in Pretoria, South Africa, Percy Maimela is a self-taught artist who discovered his love for art during his early childhood. Maimela, who became a full-time artist in 2016, is inspired by issues and conditions surrounding his communities and strives to inspire and motivate his community through his work. His preferred media includes charcoal drawing, painting, and some traditional art forms, but he also experiments with untraditional mediums like salt, maize meal, ashes, and coffee grounds. In March 2021, Maimela participated in the group exhibition AIR  for the Alliance Française du Cap at the Cape Heritage Hotel. He currently works at August House studios in Johannesburg.

Provenance
