The Koena Art Institute is set to present the grand opening exhibition of its latest exhibitor, the expressions of fine and contemporary artist, Razia Myers themed “Aqua Terra Firma”.

Showcasing pieces informed and inspired by the permanence of bedrock and the unbridled ocean, each combine in an abundance of tactile colour that celebrates God’s many gifts. All inspired by mother nature itself.


The visual artist and sculptor was born in Johannesburg and relocated to Cape Town in 2003.

At the end of 2015, Myers began to realise her purpose and studied under the tutelage of Paul Birchall an Art Teacher at Ruth Prowse School of Art and later with Jill Trappler who compares art to a composition of musical notes.

She quickly began moving her brush strokes from specific, figurative works to more general and expressive works. The expression she says is rooted in her spiritual connection with God.

In 2016 she was awarded a Masterclass and Arts Residency Scholarship at the Jerusalem School of Arts in Italy. An intensive studio program for the highly motivated and gifted student under the tutelage of Israel Hershberg.

She has recently included sculpture and photography in her art practice. Myers has also participated in numerous group exhibitions as well as solo exhibitions nationally.
