Maya Hayuk [ BROOKLYN, NY, USA ]all artists
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. She sees her studio painting practice and mural making as both inversely relational and symbiotic.
She was born in Baltimore and lives and works in Brooklyn. In addition to her Wynwood Walls mural, Hayuk’s work has also graced Goldman Properties’ Houston Bowery Wall.
