New York artist Maya Hayuk has had a busy year traveling around the world creating murals and installations. From a giant outdoor piece for the Open Walls street art project in Baltimore to indoor collaborations in Australia, Hayuk adapts her craft-inspired painting style to any environment. Her ability to weave colors and geometric shapes together gives her paintings a textile-like consistency that nods to folk art forms in addition to graffiti and Abstract Expressionism. Hayuk’s electric color combinations transform open spaces into shrine-like sanctuaries with their symmetrical arrangements, and her new work is hypnotizing to look at. Images courtesy of the artist.
