The artist, Iryna Maksymova
was born in Kolomyia, Ukraine in 1991. Right now she is based in Lviv. She studied graphic design but, tired of the medium and seeking something more fulfilling the pandemic was the push she needed to set herself a full-time career as an artist. She paints to reflect her emotional experiences and what is important to her inner self, like feminism, ecology or making visible cruelty. Each of the art pieces contains her personal voice, a tool to call for reflection and action.
