> DESCRIPTION

Gallery 16 is pleased to welcome Brooklyn based artist Maya Hayuk to her first solo show with the gallery. Hayuk is a prolific muralist, photographer, printmaker, painter, illustrator, and documentarian. Her fearless attraction to wild color, a genre-bending mix of graphic design, graffiti, illustration, and abstraction has earned her a wide international audience. Hayuk’s work overflows with a uniquely cultivated handmade aesthetic . Part punk, part psychedelic explosion, her paintings, prints and murals display unbridled enthusiasm. Her monograph “Just Good Vibes” describes the work “Multicolored diamonds morph into rainbows on public walls, day glow birds and flowers sprout extra appendages appearing both beautiful and menacing, and everything eschews logic while making perfect aesthetic sense. Hayuk’s bold images of colorful beauty are at once visceral, ethereal, humorous and political.”
