Maia Chung is a Jamaican artist living and working in Kingston Jamaica. Her artistic approach is called ‘Mistakenism.’ She created that definition because she deliberately plants errors in her work. She plans to enter the world of visual art to add to what exists, not fit in. ‘Mistakenism,’ to Chung, means no matter what the image looks like (read life), everything, no matter who you are, will contain imperfections and mistakes.
Chung says, “Life has taught me that there really are no mistakes, whatever the manifestation, that is how the thing is supposed to be. And it is out of these human defined flaws or mistakes that blooms a majority of life’s deepset beauties and triumphs.” Her art journey is about that. She prefers to use collage, mixed mediums and recycled materials in her work.
