Maya Eventov (abstract)

The Paintings of Maya Eventov are so rich with color, light, and detail that they reflect not only an extraordinary draughtsmanship but also a sense of artistic well being and happiness. In the hands of this artist, the interiors and still-lifes become extra-ordinary, and the chairs and flowers, harps and roman pillars that have been interpreted by generations of artists take on personas that could be sophisticated and rich, whimsical and fun, having their own independent life within the painting.

Maya began her training as a child in art schools of Leningrad, where she learned painting, drawing and composition. After attending the Leningrad high College of Art & Design named after V. Muhina, Maya worked in the field of children book illustration, wallpaper design, and took part in the elaboration of the murals for cinema halls and concert halls in Leningrad, Moscow, Erevan and Komsomolsk-na-Amure, and in private residencies. She works in watercolors and oils, using her own unique technique that combines oil painting and etching.
