Nzuji de Magalhaes

Costa Mesa, CA

“Nzuji De Magalhaes earned her MFA from the University of Southern California and currently lives in Costa Mesa, California. Drawing on the early influence of Angolan folklore and mythology, she uses material from yarn, sand, glitter, and beads to chalk, acrylic, and oil paint. Her work explores the exchange between African and American cultures, bringing forward issues of gender, child labor, and the experience of minority communities in the United States and abroad.

Her work has been exhibited at the Studio Museum in Harlem, New York City; Museum of the African Diaspora, San Francisco; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles and the Boxheart Gallery, Pittsburgh.”
