"...From drawings on the walls of a cave to satellite photos, from ochre tones to monochrome blues and greens, or from a simple black line to a skillful mix of primary colors, everything that touches and moves me is situated between "Heaven and Earth". I paint on world maps, subway or city maps and I magine the earth from the sky. I paint on wood, burlap, sand mixes and raw materials. I make films, I share stories and emotions. I thus leave the testimony of my belonging to the past, present and future. - Maharaki "
Over the years, Maharaki's paintings have been acquired by international buyers and are thus dispersed throughout the world.
