Biography

Maria Myasnikova (b. 1997) is a Russian born artist, who lives and works in Milan. In 2018 she graduated from City and Guilds of London Art School with a BA in Fine Art (Painting). Maria works in mixed-media, creating what she calls Abstract Sculptural Assemblages – “expanded paintings”, using various materials, particularly “found objects”. Each artwork is a reflection, whether it be a self-reflection of sentiments or contemplation of certain autobiographical events. The making of an Assemblage is immediate, instantaneous, and completely unplanned: ‘I never sketch before creating a work, it would tamper with my honest and raw interpretation of my “reality”’. Every Assemblage has a double title: the technical one, stating the name of the hue, and the second one, in brackets, illustrating a more profound, personal meaning of each artwork. “Each time I look at my Assemblages, I relive my memories, feelings, thoughts. They are an integral part of me.”
