“My interest in drawing, painting, and designing began at a very early age. My paintings convey a feeling of harmony between nature and humanity, featuring a dab of art deco, a dash of the surreal, and a touch of aboriginal charm.” – Maya Vinokurov

Vinokurov produces work in a variety of media including pencils, oil, acrylic, pastel, watercolor and encaustic and enjoys working in an Art Deco style while also experimenting with a variety of techniques. 

She was recently awarded the Ley Dan Award 2016 and exhibited with THE ARTBOX, PROJECT Miami 1.0 in Miami, Florida and THE ARTBOX.GALLERY, in Switzerland. Vinokurov has exhibited at Agora Gallery, New York, BOLA, Brazil and more.

" My objective is to continue working in my own contemporary style, combined with techniques of the old masters-in an expression of optimism, joy and serenity."
