No description


Iryna Maksymova was born and raised in a small town in the western part of Ukraine called Kolomyia. In 2013 Maksymova graduated from the graphic design department of Lviv Polytechnic National University. She then began her artistic journey in 2020 with her first solo show in Lviv. Since that time, Maksymova participated in various group shows in Ukraine and around the world including New York (2022), London (2022), Madrid (2022), Beijing (2022), Los Angeles (2021), Golden Coast (2021), Berlin (2021), etc.

With her figurative and naive artworks Maksymova gives an innocent and easy voice to the world problems that touch her personally. In her works, Maksymova explores the female body as both feminine and masculine, empowering equality and interconnection. She constantly seeks and develops a way to add traditional Ukrainian motifs in fresh new visual forms and cultivates Ukrainian primitivism art.
