About the artist
Violeta Maya (b. 1993, Madrid) is a multidisciplinary artist currently based in Barcelona. Her works range from prints, kinetic sculptures and paintings to generative art sound installations and video. The overarching theme of Maya’s work is the importance and therapeutic potential of enjoying the present moment in a world saturated with information and hyper-productivity. In an attempt to offer a peaceful and quiet time-capsule, her works draw from the power of the sensorial: sound, texture and movement work together to immerse the viewer in a calm mental state.
Maya graduated in 2015 in BA Interaction and Moving Image at Central Saint Martins (London) with a First Class Honours. Despite her young age, she has exhibited in various galleries like The Curious Festival at Barbican Center (London, UK), NB7 Gallery (Madrid, Spain), Art Farm Residency (Verona, Italy), and AE Gallery (Seul, South Korea). Maya has also participated in a number of art fairs worldwide, like AFF Art Fair (London, 2019 and Brussels, 2019, The Other Art Fair New York 2019 and CONTEXT Miami 2019.
