This painting is about embracing the imperfect, impermanent and incomplete. A wall with peeling paint, rusted undertones, and a rough texture, forgotten and overlooked with so many stories to tell. The artwork is on gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Maya

Maya’s abstract mixed-media artworks are inspired by urban imperfections–cracks in sidewalks, peeling paint, rusted metal. Influenced by the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi, Maya embraces the aesthetic flaws of city life, translating daily discoveries into heavily layered and textured paintings. “Some works have close to fifty layers,” she mentions. “I like to layer paint and media slowly, a little at a time.” Maya employs a neutral palette and generous applications of metallic leaf to create meditative yet sumptuous artworks, quietly enticing the viewer.
