Born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, Julie Mehretu is known for her multi-layered paintings of abstracted landscapes on a large scale. Her paintings, drawings, and prints depict the cumulative effects of urban sociopolitical changes. Mehretu is included in Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of 2020.”In exploring palimpsests of history, from geological time to a modern day phenomenology of the social, Julie Mehretu’s works engage us in a dynamic visual articulation of contemporary experience, a depiction of social behavior and the psychogeography of space”.©Julie Mehretu – Courtesy Marian Goodman Gallery.
