Maya Hayuk’s current exhibition was featured on NYC blog Two Coats of Paint.


“Over the past decade or so, a slew of galleries have popped up in the west end of Toronto, giving the city’s art scene a much appreciated injection of vitality. The burgeoning contemporary art hub along the Ossington strip and west Queen West has garnered international attention and acclaim, and deservedly so. Here’s a quick round up of notable painting shows in Toronto this month.

With influences ranging from Ukranian Easter eggs to chandeliers to holograms, Maya Hayuk’s Multi Versus could be described as psychedelia for the 21st century. Organized chaos reigns on canvases splashed with vibrant rainbow hues, intermixed with freehand geometric line work. A member of artist collective Barnstormers (other members include Chuck Webster, Doze Green, and Ryan McGinness) and frequent collaborator with a variety of musicians including M.I.A., The Beastie Boys, and Animal Collective, Brooklyn-based Hayuk’s oeuvre also includes silk-screening, set design, video work, and internationally commissioned murals.”
