Artist Maya Hayuk with her vibrant, colorful abstractions and large-scale murals, has long been one of my favorite artists. Hayuk lives and works in Brooklyn, NY and her work has been exhibited all over the world including The Hammer Museum in L.A., The Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, the Bowery Wall in NYC and more.
"With their symmetrical compositions, intricate patterns, and lush colors, Maya Hayuk’s paintings and massively scaled murals recall views of outer space, traditional Ukrainian crafts, airbrushed manicures, and mandalas. Hayuk weaves visual information from her immediate surroundings into her elaborate abstractions, creating an engaging mix of referents from popular culture and advanced painting practices alike while connecting to the ongoing pursuit of psychedelic experience in visual form. She has painted her iconic outdoor murals all over the world and, when not traveling, maintains an active studio in Brooklyn, sketching in paint to inform the large-scale works. She sees her studio painting practice and mural making as both inversely relational and symbiotic." - Mayahayuk.com
