ALLES KLAR | Maya Hayuk solo Show
In august 2014 Maya Hayuk will transform the gallery Die Kunstagentin into her artist studio and directly work with the structural conditions of the exhibition space. The solo show ALLES KLAR will be presenting a mixture of both artworks she brings along from New York City as well as pieces produced on location during her artist residency in Cologne.
Normally based in Brooklyn, NYC, Maya Hayuk numbers among the most successful female artists in the Urban Art scene. With symmetrical compositions, intricate patterns and radiant colours her works and huge murals adopt visual elements of their architectural surroundings and transform these into vivid woven geometries. She reflects both on advanced technologies as on traditional Ukrainian folklore. Maya Hayuk's works interweave visual information of her environment with her delight in abstraction and colour and her interest in outer space impressions and mandalas into a captivating mixture.
Maya Hayuk has a degree in Interrelated Media from the Massachusetts College of Art and studied at V.C.U., Richmond, VA, Ontario College of Art and Design, Toronto, Canada, the University of Odessa, Odessa, Ukraine and at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Skowhegan, Maine.
Hayuk has had solo exhibitions and commission works at The Bowery Wall, NY (2014), The Hammer Museum, LA (2013), The Museum Of Contemporary Canadian Art, Toronto, Canada (2013) and Bonnefanten Museum, Maastricht, The Netherlands (2012) among others.
ALLES KLAR will be Maya Hayuk's only solo show in 2014.
