Meet Brooklyn-based artist Maya Hayuk, whose murals you will always be able to recognize due to their bold geometric patterns and colorful abstractions.
Hayuk, educated both in Massachusetts and Odessa, gathers inspiration for her murals from visually stimulating trans-cultural and multi-disciplinary sources. From cultural elements, like the pysanka (Ukrainian Easter eggs decorated with folk designs), mandalas, and chandeliers, astronomy visuals like views from the Hubble telescope, technological advances like holograms, all the way to psychological tools like the Rorschach test, Hayuk gives the chance of everyday and less-everyday objects and surroundings to be the subjects of artistic production.
Hayuk’s large paintings and massive murals echo her inspirations through their vivid colors, symmetrical compositions, and delicate patterns. The fusion of intricate work with pop culture references lead the viewers to a psychedelic experience in visual form. Except for exhibiting her work in galleries, Hayuk has also painted iconic outdoor murals all over the world. Her astonishing outdoor murals can be found on walls around the US, like in Baltimore or Oklahoma, as well as in countries across the globe, like Mexico, Chile, Brazil, Belgium, and Spain, among others.
