For 20 years now, Majo Portilla from the Netherlands has been painting across the globe, from Amsterdam, Guatemala, USA and Basel to Dubai now where she currently resides. With a wealth of experience accrued over her travels, she channels them into her bold semi-abstract pieces that commands the vibrancy of her artistic career.
With oil and acrylics as her core painting mediums, Majo assesses the human condition and draws out the inner beauty and strengths of her subjects. Often clad in intricately textured outfits, her figures are mostly devoid of any facial features, prompting her viewers to look not at the surface, but introspectively at the qualities of the mental and emotional states.
The Mauritius International Art Fair, Carrousel du Louvre Contemporary Art Fair, Museo Diffuso Contemporaneo Permanent Exhibition in Italy, and the Museum of the Americas have all propelled her artworks into diverse markets throughout the globe.
