Brooklyn-based artist Maya Hayuk is known for her psychedelic geometric wall murals. These huge pieces of interwoven colors and shape are a real joy to look at. I had the pleasure of seeing one of her works in Wynwood, a famous art center of Miami. Maya's start to art began with her grandmother's teachings of old Ukrainian crafts, but she has now transformed those teaching into beautiful street art. "As a small child, my grandmothers would teach me crafts like embroidery, batik egg dying and reciting poetry," the artist explained. "This was probably the first and most impactful influence in my life. I learned not only to have a very steady hand and determination, but they taught me about the richness of the meaning of all of these geometric symbols."
