MAYA HAYUK - JUST GOOD VIBES
Just Good Vibes is the long awaited debut monograph by the extremely prolific artist Maya Hakuk, a muralist, photographer, printmaker, painter, illustrator, and documentarian. In a world where artists increasingly rely on the computer to create static images, Hayuks work overflows with handmade, organic essence and soul. Part punk, part psychedelic explosion, the paintings. prints and murals collected here are simple and complicated, unbound and unpredictable. Multicolored diamonds morph into rainbows on public walls, dayglow birds and flowers sprout extra appendages appearing both beautiful and menacing, and everything eschews logic while making perfect aesthetic sense. Just Good Vibes collects Hayuks bold images of colorful beauty that are at once visceral, ethereal, humorous and political.
