Diana Ejaita works as an illustrator and textile designer in Berlin. What sets her illustrations apart is a combination of dramatically contrasting areas of black and white with soft patterns and textures that create images that betray the strength of femininity.
Born in Cremona, Nigerian origins, her aesthetic pays homage to her lineage.
“I am mostly into central african culture, I love it’s literature, animism believes and textile traditions. But as a child of migration and of interracial parents i am very driven by the issues of colonial/ post colonial effects, racial , gender discrimination and identity research”.
