ArtRising.africa is a sponsored digital portfolio inspired by an incredibly talented woman who needed an opportunity to rise up to her feet. Realising that there are many talented women out there in similar circumstances, ArtRising.africa was born.
Many such women escape destructive relationships that last years and never have the opportunity or motivation to develop and empower themselves with skills. They bring with them the unpretentious emotions of pain and passion captured in exquisite original art, while healing, uplifting themselves, and regaining self worth in society.
ArtRising.africa offers a free digital platform to women to showcase their original artwork and to gain exposure.
Original artworks can be done on order or an artist can be contracted for larger projects for corporate clients. Mediums used are mainly organic, such as tea, coffee, beetroot, et cetera, to provide beautiful natural shades.
Some artists may use aliases for the sake of anonimity and/or personal reasons and in these case ArtRising.africa will act as their contact person. No commission or fees are levied on any artworks, and buying through this platform will benefit the artists fully.
ArtRising.africa aims to uplift and empower women through art.
Maia is currently the main artist for ArtRising.africa. She has gained exposure through ArtRising.africa and her original artworks add remarkable focal points to many interior spaces.
Her art can be viewed and bought at the Rooibos Teahouse in Clanwilliam, or artwork can be done on order.

The Flower Church in Clanwilliam is a well known tourist landmark and creating artwork of it in a medium that Clanwilliam is world renowned for, is quite special.
