Rosemarie Kamana

Average Vendor Rating
0 out of 5

Rosemarie Kamana is an African contemporary artist living in Cork, Ireland. Her paintings are inspired by nature, her native Africa, travels,
storytelling and background in multi media design. Largely self-taught, Kamana has been painting for over a decade and creates oil, acrylic & mixed media
paintings. "Mine is definitely a tale of cultural emulsion and diversity - my life in The Netherlands, Australia, Ireland and my African roots. Local
scenes or images from my travels become subjects of my paintings and I sometimes gravitate towards issues I feel strongly about - I tell stories of
inspiring women through portraiture."
Through her art, Kamana offers her worldview and a narrative of her African heritage and culture. Her paintings have juried into prominent
exhibits in Sydney, Australia (SYD), London, United Kingdom (LDN), Pula, Croatia (PUY), Dublin, Ireland (DUB) and New York, USA (NYC).
Whether it’s starting a new painting or engaging in community projects, Kamana hopes to always treat her art as a platform to impact,
influence and serve. She actively participates in art community projects and is the founder of Kamana Collective - a social enterprise in Cork
which empowers underprivileged women in disadvantaged communities by providing a platform for them to learn, that create, earn a decent
living, and in turn empower others.
ARTIST STATEMENT
“Art defines who I am and what I want to be. In my art I like to capture the beauty in women, places and objects. Different mediums allow me to
express different ideas, using my tools as an artist I develop and create art platforms to empower underprivileged women and provide a space for
them to create and express. My intention is impact, influence and growth
