Aischa MBengue

Painter

Bio

She was born near Leipzig, she first came to Marienheide in 1960, a year before the Wall was built, and then I ended up in Düsseldorf.As a child she started drawing with pencil, for example portraits of her classmates. That's how her relationship to creativity began and she later trained as a graphic artist. For a long time she only drew and painted periodically. At the same time, she was involved in family life and her main task was to take care of her children. She also worked, so there was hardly any time for art. She feels art is the art of living and she is self-taught. For some years now, she has taken time as her time and work almost daily with paints, acrylics, brushes, pens of all kinds. Sometimes also with chalks, fabric or glass paints. What appeals to her in terms of materials occupies her thoughts and brings forth ideas. It is simply wonderful to have this enthusiasm. It fills her everyday life with life. Whether she is inspired by nature or photos seem interesting, many views in detail lead to a realisation. She is often out and about and have bought myself an A3 drawing pad and pens as an alternative. She finds Polychrome artists coloured pencils very good. Otherwise she like to paint on canvases, wooden panels, also glass panes and fabrics. Painting surfaces of various kinds. And preferably in larger formats. Aischa's work is connected with the approach of being able to forget time. In silence and detached from other things the concentration is on the picture and in the beginning she doesn't know how and what can come out of it. There are exceptions when a picture is to be produced exactly according to plan. A slow progression and a joining together. Also as a surprise for herself. Thoughts and feelings flow into the work. When she was young, she travelled to Morocco. Since then she loves this country, she is fascinated by the Mediterranean light and the resulting colours. Aischa spend a lot of time there and paint there as well. Her intention and motivation is to achieve a good feeling in the viewer of her paintings.
