Cassi Namoda, along with seven other leading international artists, were asked to create a print to celebrate Greenpeace's 50th anniversary.
‘Ernesto finds potential on the other side’ (2022) is Cassi Namoda’s dreamlike contribution to the Greenpeace 50 Years campaign. Namoda’s figurative portraits explore the intricacies and intimacies of everyday life under the spectre of post-colonialism: Her figures cry, embrace, wade into deep waters, and embark on winding paths. Whilst Namoda's landscapes resound with the features of equatorial life – blazing suns, palm trees – but they are mythic in their representation and pleasantly impeccable – mirroring the subjects that populate them.
Cassi Namoda (b. 1988, Mozambique) is a painter whose work transfigures the cultural mythologies and historical narratives of life in post-colonial Africa, particularly those of the artist’s native Mozambique. Namoda’s paintings are highly elusive, drawing upon literary, cinematic and architectural influences that capture the expansiveness of her specifically Luso-African vantage point.
Namoda's work has been included in exhibitions at Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute, New York and Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts, New York. Her recent solo exhibitions include Nina Johnson Gallery, Miami; Library Street Collective, Detroit; and Oof Books Gallery, Los Angeles, Goodman Gallery in Johannesburg and Mendes Wood in São Paulo. Her work is held in the public collection of the Pérez Art Museum Miami. Namoda has been the subject of profiles in Cultured Magazine, Kaleidoscope, Artnet, and Vogue. A suite of new paintings will be included in the upcoming group exhibition LA Dreams 2 at CFHILL, Stockholm.
