    Jade Maduike (she/her) is a London based multimedia artist whose distinctive portraiture style is deeply influenced by her British Nigerian upbringing. Jade’s work explores themes of chaos, fluidity and femininity as vibrant re-imaginations of her experiences through the lens of a young black woman. 

    Originally practicing as a traditional graphite artist, Jade has expanded to a specialization in digital illustration and ink, combining the elements of realism and surrealism that have come to define her artistic expression. This exhibition includes a selection of works from her collection “I Found Comfort in My Night Terrors” a selection of bizarre and enchanting digital artworks, crossing the boundaries between fear, adrenaline and ecstasy - largely inspired by personal experiences, fantasies and the culture that defined them. Alongside this are a selection of pieces inspired by “Fluidity and Tranquility” a digital and ink collection, making their first exhibition debut.
