Maya Hayuk recently created a new mural on the Bowery and Houston wall in Manhattan (the same wall that previously housed murals by Pose, Revok, Swoon and a plethora of other notable street artists). Hayuk’s grid-like works are fundamentally geometric, but despite their architectural style, they are largely created in the spur of the moment, with little advance planning. “It’s all made up as I go and it feels GREAT,” wrote the artist in an email to Hi-Fructose. “It’s my favorite way of working. It’s very physical and freeing.” She begins by roughly sketching a few evenly-spaced lines, but allows herself to get carried away in the process from there. During the course of this work’s completion, the artist labored in the snow and sleet of the cold New York winter, ultimately emerging with a triumphant, colorful piece that adds color to the city’s landscape.
