Maya Eventov

Maya Eventov was introduced to the great artistic treasures of St. Petersburg by her parents. Born in Leningrad, former Soviet Union, Maya spent many hours at The Hermitage museum studying the work of great masters, especially the works of post-impressionist period and the Russian avant-garde. The color palettes of Matisse, Gauguin and Renoir’s works greatly influenced Maya Eventov’s love of color. Maya derived her sense of balance and composition from the works of Alexander Rodchenko, El Lissitzky and Kazimir Malevich. At the same time, Maya also studied and explored the works of old masters, learning the value of detail and light.

About Maya Eventov

Maya Eventov attended various art classes from the age of six and completed an art program at an elementary art school. Eventov’s tutors recognized her talent and urged her to apply for a school affiliated with St. Petersburg State Academy of Industrial. Maya graduated from the Academy in 1987 with a master’s degree in graphic design, where she would then start working as a children’s book illustrator. She also worked as a muralist for halls in Moscow, Leningrad, Erevan and Komsomolsk-na-Amure.

Maya immigrated to Canada in 1990 where she now resides with her husband and two children. Her style of work has changed over the years, something she attributes to a happier, safer, and more secure life she built in North America. Maya Evantov loves rich, bold and bright colors of Mediterranean and often portrays scenes from her travels in her landscapes and in still-life backgrounds.

Maya developed her unique technique of etching in oil, drawing from techniques from Fabergé Egg designs in Russian museums from her youth. Her works inspire feelings of happiness, wellbeing, and joy. Her intention is to evoke the warmth of afternoon sun and the heat of the sidewalk, the smell of exotic flowers and the taste of ripe fruit. Through her art, she wants you to wander the roads of Tuscany with her, or enjoy a quiet moment in an overstuffed armchair somewhere in Spain.

Questions Answered

Maya Eventov uses acrylic paints and creates the depth using a pallet knife. All of the paintings you see by Maya are entirely done by carefully piling on large amounts of acrylic paint onto canvas with her pallet knife. This creates a texture that you will very rarely see in the world of art.

Maya attributes her happy subject matters with the joyous life she crafted after moving to North America.
