Biography 

Maya Eventov was born in 1964 in Leningrad in the USSR. Her work is representative of the quite distinctive modern Russian avant-gardism style of painting. Maya Eventov’s paintings are so rich with color, light and detail that they reflect not only an extraordinary draftsmanship but also a sense of artistic well being and happiness. In the hands of this artist, interiors and still life become extraordinary. The chairs, flowers, harps and Roman pillars take on personas that are sophisticated and rich while also whimsical and fun. Each element has its own independent existence within a unified painting. Maya began her training as a child in the art schools of Leningrad, where she learned painting, drawing and composition. Maya graduated from the Leningrad High College of Art, which was named for V. Muhina, in 1981 and began her career as an artist. It was at this point that Maya began to work professionally as a children's book illustrator and wallpaper designer. She also took part in the creation of the murals for cinema and concert halls in Leningrad, Moscow, Erevan and Komsomolsk-na-Amure as well as many private residences in Toronto and Dundas, Ontario. She primarily works in watercolors and oil paint and has developed a unique technique combining oil paint with etching. Maya's watercolors were published in Valencia, Spain and were introduced as prints for the first time in Europe at Birmingham Art Show '98, in Great Britain.
