Donated by the artist

Based in New York, Maya Hayuk is a Ukrainian American artist with an extensive background in a wide and generative range of art and social practices. Hayuk weaves visual information from her immediate surroundings into elaborate, painterly abstractions, thus creating an engaging mix of referents from popular culture and advanced painting practices alike. Her large-scale improvised murals speak to the artist’s obsession with symmetry, perfect imperfection, and outer/inner space. Ultimately, the traditional and the contemporary blend into new harmonic, dissonant, optimistic, experimental compositions. Hayuk graduated from the Massachusetts College of Art and has studied at Virginia Commonwealth University (Richmond), the Ontario College of Art and Design (Toronto), the University of Odessa (Ukraine), and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture (Maine). Hayuk’s work has been the subject of one-person exhibitions and commissions. Her work is represented in several public and private collections internationally, including MIMA (the Millennium Iconoclast Museum of Art, in Brussels), MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art, Jacksonville, Florida), the Embassy of the United States of America (Sanaa, Yemen), the Embassy of the United States of America Residence (Costa Rica), and the Ullens Foundation (Brussels).
