Streets: Maya Hayuk (Coney Art Walls)

What started out as a sunny Saturday morning eventually turned into nearly five spotty days of thunderstorms, coastline flash flooding and Maya Hayuk relentlessly riding out the storm in pursuit of her craft. As the weather went from bright, blooming and beautiful to dark, dreary and dismal, so also morphed the aesthetic of this incredible wall.

Many artists would have called it a […]

The Brooklyn-based artist created an exclusive, limited edition record sleeve from her recently released and sold out silkscreen edition Multiverses #2. “The idea for this collaboration […]
