Maya Leites

"Great art is the outward expression of the inner life in the artist, and this inner life will result in his personal vision of the world" - Edward Hopper

Maya's creativity manifests itself in many disciplines. Trained as an architect, after many years in the field, she decided to dedicate herself to art as she finds it to be the most profound and fundamental form of communication. 

Maya is also an amateur classical pianist, and her interest in architecture and music sparked her fascination with the human experience in general and its relationship with the surrounding environment. Having lived in different places around the world provides her with valuable perspective and sensitivity to the diversity around her; all this plays an important role in Maya’s art. She is always fascinated with the challenges of translating the experience of form, space, time and sound into her paintings. 

For Maya each painting is a new world of exploration for ideas, concepts, experiences, media and techniques; each painting presenting new intellectual and practical challenges.
