Extended Biography

Maya Eventov was born in 1964 in Leningrad in the USSR. Her work is representative of the quite distinctive modern Russian avant-gardism style of painting. Maya Eventov’s paintings are so rich with color, light, and detail that they reflect not only extraordinary craftsmanship but also a sense of artistic well-being and happiness.

In the hands of this artist, interiors and still life become extraordinary. The chairs, flowers, harps, and Roman pillars take on personas that are sophisticated and rich while also whimsical and fun. Each element has its own independent existence within a unified painting.

Dasha moved to New York City in 1966 where she studied photography and worked in the textile and fashion design industry where her work was acknowledged with many industry awards. She also designed her own boutique and fashion line for Madison Avenue. Through all of this commercial success, she dreamed of returning to her personal painting.

The 1990’s led Dasha back to her fine art roots and she began to develop a unique personal style.  Incorporating her talent and vision for color, texture, and pattern with traditional and nontraditional mediums Dasha creates bold, Murano glass-like paintings that are celebrations of color, movement, and light.
