Maria Kreyn – The messenger

“Working now in New York City, Maria is drawing attention as an up and coming addition to the new generation of contemporary figurative painters. Her work combines the rigorous classical tradition of high craftsmanship with compelling and innovative conceptual thinking.

Originally from Russia (born 1985), Maria and her family immigrated to the United States in 1989. She received her education at the University of Chicago, studying mathematics and philosophy. The rich cultural intensity of her Russian heritage shines through her paintings and drawings. And her academic background informs not only her paintings, but also her writing on esthetic theory and contemporary art. Notably, her engaging interview with Odd Nerdrum can be found in the recent publication of “Kitsch more than Art” (Kitsch mer enn Kunst). During the past five years, she has traveled and exhibited extensively throughout the United States and Europe from Terrence Rodgers in Los Angeles, to the National Arts Club in New York City, to Galleri PAN in Oslo.”
