Maria Dimanshtein
Long Island City, Queens , New York

In her mixed media works, Maria Dimanshtein uses everything from glitter to magazine cutouts to spray paint. Sometimes she plays with these elements to see what might happen, while other times she tries to echo a specific creative vision. When she’s not making art, she does freelance work as a graphic designer. Maria recently moved to New York from Illinois and loves it there because she can finally see all those masterpieces she read about in art history books.

Two of my pieces will be in the "Night Sky" show at Evanston Art Center, opening June 3rd, 2012, 1-4pm. I will be there. Should be a great show!

Artwork Details

Comments About This Piece

I work with paper cutouts, which I combine with a variety of painted backgrounds. I create a shape, cut it out by hand from solid paper, and then paste it over the background. The gold background has a matte shimmer and appears to be glowing. It interacts with the lighting in the room. This piece is from an edition of 20 (each created individually by hand, having the same design), and comes numbered and signed. This round piece is on heavyweight paper and will need a matte and frame for display.

Mixed media artwork

Mixed media refers to an artwork that is created using several different types of traditional art media, for example oil paint, ink and collage. The specific media used for each mixed media piece on UGallery is listed in the notes section.


Paper is a very common surface for all types of artwork, including photography, printmaking, drawing and painting. Art paper varies in thickness and color. Read the notes section to learn more about the paper used to create this artwork. If not noted as framed, most paper artwork will require framing.


A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
