First Name Maya
Last Name Eventov
Country Canada

Maya Eventov was born in 1964 in Leningrad in the USSR. Maya, who now resides  in Canada and summers in her Miami, Florida home, started as 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.  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.  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 acrylic using a knife to sculpt paint with a very heavy texture in what can only be described as sculpture on canvas. Maya's newest endevors are heavy impasto knife painting on canvas with a ever expanding subject matter ranging from Italian Countryside, Stands of Trees bisecting the canvas, poppies and wildflowers blowing in the brease, to Abstract paintings as well as female figure paintings.  Maya continues to lead with her ever evolving style and never ceases to challenge herself or thrill the viewer with her wonderful talent.

An art movement founded in France in the last third of the 19th century. Impressionist artists sought to break up light into its component colors and render its ephemeral play on various objects. The artist's vision was intensely centered on light and the ways it transforms the visible world. This style of painting is characterized by short brush strokes of bright colors used to recreate visual impressions of the subject and to capture the light, climate and atmosphere of the subject at a specific moment in time. The chosen colors represent light which is broken down into its spectrum components and recombined by the eyes into another color when viewed at a distance (an optical mixture). The term was first used in 1874 by a journalist ridiculing a landscape by Monet called Impression - Sunrise.
