Maya Hayuk electrified the red brick monotony of Downtown Oklahoma City in 2011 when her symmetric florescence took over the walls of the Flaming Lips WOMB gallery.
But her signature sits on exterior walls of cities far outside U.S. borders. The Brooklyn-based artist cut her chops creating album covers, videos, stage sets and posters for Rye Rye/M.I.A, The Akron Family, TV on the Radio, The Flaming Lips, Devendra Banhardt, Seun Kuti, Prefuse 73, Awesome Color, Oakley Hall, Home, Animal Collective, The Beastie Boys and others. Since 1999, she’s thrown her signature symmetric, nourishing colors on exterior walls in Sao Paulo, Barcelona, Chile, Brussels, Colonial Williamsburg, Baltimore and Mexico City. As prolific as she is energetic, her work occupies galleries across the globe.
