Her work is both gorgeous and terrifying often dealing with fantasies of beauty and nobility, myth, power, identity seduction and the American dream, exploring the relationship of light and dark through a range of influences from art history to fairyland with a post-modernist twist.

Los Angeles close to ending decade-long mural moratorium

Street Art // Friday, August 30, 2013
On Wednesday, a 13-2 vote was made by the City Council setting the wheels in motion to lift a decade-long restriction on murals in Los Angeles. Since 2002, the mural moratorium had been enforced, which originally was intended to curb proliferating advertising. With the new rules that are expected to be finalized by the end of next week, artists will be required to register their project and pay a $60 fee. The mural will be restricted to industrial and business zones, excluding single-family residential homes and those that have any commercial messages.

"Hayuk weaves visual information from her immediate surroundings into her elaborate abstractions, creating an engaging mix of referents from popular culture and advanced painting practices while connecting to the ongoing pursuit of psychedelic experience in visual form." Maya was featured in our special December 2009 Barnstormers issue.
