West Bristol Arts member Maita Robinson has spent a lifetime pursuing artistic endeavours. She’s had several exhibitions in different disciplines over the years including painting, mixed media, and print-making. She also trained as a classical animator at Vancouver Film School and made short films which have been screened at international film festivals. Maita is also a busy solo singer and qualified dressage judge!
After completing the Foundation Art course at Queen’s Road, Maita was introduced to Spike Print Studios, where she was inspired to create very large monoprints and was included in several exhibitions!
Maita’s current art work has developed out of her need to do something fun and inventive which fits in with her busy life. She creates unique, one off cards and small art works with low tech printing techniques; cutting and collaging images using recycled materials and including beautiful Japanese and hand marbled papers. She also uses ephemera and junk shop finds to create one off collages. Maita loves creating quirky and humorous images which express her sense of design and humour.
Maita’s work can be found at Room 212, the cornucopia of Bristol artists on the Gloucester Road, and Alchemy 198, Gloucester Road. She also exhibits on the West and North Bristol art trails plus other exhibitions during the year.
