Maya Eventov was born in 1964 in Leningrad, in the former Soviet Union. At a very young age she was introduced by her parents to the great artistic treasures of St. Petersburg. Maya spent countless hours at her favourite Hermitage museum studying the works of great masters, especially those of the post-impressionist period and Russian avant-gardism. The palette of such artists as Matisse, Gauguin and Renoir greatly influenced her interpretation of colour. Maya derived her sense of balance and composition from the works of Alexander Rodchenko, El Lissitzki and Kazimir Malevich and learned the value of detail and light from the works of old masters.
