Preview: Maya Hayuk "Multi Versus" @ Cooper Cole, Toronto

September 05, 2012

Maya Hayuk has always been one of our favorite artists, and we loved the last time we saw her work in the magazine was our very special Barnstormers issue in December 2009. She is now opening a new set of works at Toronto's Cooper Cole Gallery, opening on September 6, 2012.

COOPER COLE is pleased to present a solo exhibiton with New York based multidisciplinary artist Maya Hayuk.

Maya Hayuk is a muralist, painter, photographer, printmaker, video artist and musician. Her art practice has carried her between San Fransisco, Baltimore, Boston, Toronto and New York. This changing environment has inspired her explosive works of art from large scale murals, to slightly more modest works on cavas. Hayuk explores electric colour, distorted symmetry and unusual geommetry that tends to resemble kaledescopic views, airbrushed nail art, Mexican woven blankets, Ukrainian Easter eggs, chandeliers, mandalas, Rorschach tests, holograms, or even views from the Hubble telescope. The precise and calculated lines in her brushstrokes become an essential element in the unpredictable symmetry that results.

Her work has been exhibited extensively internationally including at New Image Art (Los Angeles), A.L.IC.E. (Brussels), COOPER COLE (Toronto), as well as large-scale public murals across the United States, Brazil, China, the Bahamas, and Chile. Her work has been featured in in various printed and electronic media including monographs published by Ginko Press and Nieves. Hayuk was a participant at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, 2011.
