South Carolina based self-taught artist and entrepreneur.
Columbia, South Carolina artist Ija Charles is a self-taught painter and entrepreneur. Her series range from portraits of ordinary people to a diverse sampling of symbols from our day to day culture. These images are then reimagined and reconstructured in her own unique way. Inspired by the Creole lifestyle of her family, Ija plants an idea for each new work and harvests the positive vibes her very foundation is based upon in every piece once sealed with her signature.
