MAJA ANNA CHRIS
Maja Anna Chris lives and works in Amsterdam, one of the cities that inspire her the most. She is always finding inspiration in architecture, in the repeating patterns of the facades, doors and windows in the city. Her latest series of paintings is inspired by the details of the Amsterdam’s charming facades.
Her artworks show the beautiful side of the visual creating new and positive representations of life. The cityscapes she paints are not an exact replica of the reality, but a reflection of it, transformed by her sensibility, color palette, vision and emotions. Through her identification with the urban space and time, she creates new impressions of the infinite discoveries offered by the city.
Maja paints with acrylics and oils on canvas, birch panels and paper, but she also uses colored pencils, graphite and pastels. Her creative process involves drawing, monotype and addition and subtraction of layered paint. The colors she uses are inspired by nature.
She had eight solo exhibitions, participated in more than fifty international group exhibitions and has won three awards. She holds Bachelor’s (2006) and Master’s degree in Fine Arts (2009) and a PhD in Art History (2018). Maja’s artworks are part of many public and private collections worldwide.
