Maya Chkonia


“I work in painting and graphics. My works cover almost all genres. I work for a long time – a small drawing can take several years. That’s why I think they convey my inner state.

Figure painting is less appealing for me, however, I believe that a professional artist should be able to paint academically; one should be educated in all fields of painting and art, must have his own vision, individual handwriting and as a person, must be free from clichés and stereotypical thinking. I think art is the only thing that leaves a kind and bright trace in the history of mankind.”
