Iryna Maksymova - Contemporary Figurative Artist 

I am a Ukrainian figurative artist talking about things that touch me personally.

I was born and raised in a small town in the western part of Ukraine called Kolomyia. In 2013 graduated from the graphic design department of Lviv Polytechnic National University. I began my artistic journey in 2020 with my first solo show in Lviv. Since that time I participated in various group shows in Ukraine and around the world.
 

With my figurative and naive artworks I give an innocent and easy voice to the world problems that touch me personally. I am exploring woman body as both feminine and masculine, empowering equality and interconnection as well as constantly seeking and developing the way to add traditional Ukrainian motifs in a fresh new visual forms and cultivating Ukrainian primitivism art. 

Currently living in Lviv, Ukraine.
