Gabriel Fine Art is delighted to exhibit the extraordinary artwork of Mariya Naydis, a Ukrainian originated artist whose work has so far been successfully exhibited in Germany.
Mariya Naydis produces vibrant, dream evoked pieces of artwork with an extremely exquisite quality to them. Painted in oil, the art is abstract and bold with various interesting figures and stories encapsulated within which express the human emotions, nature and depict her own dreams. She concerns herself specifically with the realistic, detailed conception of her dreams, feelings and visions. She conveys the far spectrum of human emotions from sorrow to rage to love, fear, and longing.
Born on the 12th June 1983 in Dnepropetrowsk, Mariya grew up in the Soviet union of that time. In her infancy she had to be content with little – often it pulled her on the street where she found materials such as multi-coloured shards. Mariya was fascinated and obviously it was not difficult for her to lay these shards out into colourful picture mosaics. Mariya’s grandmother was an actress in the theatre. Her mother told her numerous stories growing up which sparked a constantly growing interest to represent the experience of life and art as a possible unity.
Since 1998 the native Ukrainian has lived in Munich. Mariya left the Assam secondary school in Munich in 2005 and holds a high school diploma. In parallel to her school she graduated from the art school of Michael Tschernjaveski in Munich which she attended from 1999 to 2007 studying painting and graphics. During this period of study (January and February, 2005) Mariya’s pictures were made accessible in group exhibitions to the public. The first individual exhibition of her works took place in the ‘Sendlinger Kulturschmiede’, Munich. In 2007 she participated in a group exhibition in the gallery ‘Ludmilla Wagner’, Munich. In 2008 Mariya’s pictures were shown within the annual exhibition the ‘Alps’ of the Munich Artist’s Association in the “house of the art”, as well as in 2012 in a further event. In the contest ‘Young Gasteig’ in Munich she won the first prize in December 2012. In 2013 she accepted an invitation for an individual exhibition in the cultural pavilion, Munich and in April of the same year her work was issued in the art pavilion Munich under the subject “the reason bears monster”. It joined in December, 2013 the annual exhibition VBK in the art pavilion of the “old botanic garden “, Munich.
Mariya’s success speaks for itself. In January 2014 she held an exhibition consisting of the subject ‘As Mr. Keuner incendiary turned….fine pictures/ arsonists’ in the art pavilion, Munich. In March 2014 the Munich Artist’s Association set up another show with her pictures in the ‘museum of Egyptian art’. Other exhibitions followed in January 2015 in the ‘De Sena & De Sena Gallery’ in Westerham and repeatedly within the framework of the annual exhibition of the Munich Artist’s Association in the ‘museum of Egyptian Art’.
