The eldest of two light-eyed boys born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Jendayi Maji Berry is the offspring of a Prophet and a Firefighter and since childhood has shown extraordinary promise in a number of creative fields. Yet he is best known for his visual art pursuits. Multi-panel abstract acrylic paintings brimming with vibrant colors and bold movement epitomize Jendayi’s work.
As a self-taught artist, Jendayi’s middle years were filled with travel to amazing destinations – Israel, Holland, Amsterdam, Jordan, Japan, and Jamaica – these journeys have continued to inspire Jendayi’s work today. His “from the ground up” series is a visual travel journal where abstract landscapes and rambunctious wildlife are seen from an underground perspective. In his later years, Maji would go on to study Architecture and Project Management.
Within 8 years as an independent artist Jendayi has experienced group expeditions at Minneapolis Institute of Art, RAW Artists Minneapolis, Public Functionary, Envision Art & Fashion show, MN4MN’s blank Canvas Exhibition, Tres Leches gallery and a feature on HGTV. His work has been mentioned in L’etoile Magazine, Minnesota Monthly, and Mpls.St. Paul Magazine.
As a member of @GiantStepsMN and @FaceForwardMN, RAW Minneapolis’ production assistant, and co-recipient of 2 MEDA grants (S/o to Amani Berry) he continues to contribute to youth arts education scene. You can find his work online @ www.jendayiberryart.com
