WILD for PULSE: Maya Hayuk Shows True Colors in Her Studio

Maya Hayuk is used to painting in the extremes. With mural work that has been shown around the world, her vibrant and geometric color-scapes creating electric portals in every neighborhood she paints in. Although the work Hayuk is planning to bring down to Miami’s PULSE Contemporary Art fair may only be a fraction of the size of her murals, and doesn’t require a cherry picker or rain gear,  the energy in each piece is never compromised. Take a look into Hayuk’s radiant studio, watch her work, and hear about her history with color before she shows in Miami!
