Maria Who (born in 1996 in Moscow) is an artist and designer based in Lisbon, Portugal. She graduated from Stroganov Academy of Fine Arts and Design and participated in several exhibitions and fairs in CIS and Europe. Resident of MAD Marvila, member of Artfinder.
Speaking by the paintings and drawings, she brings up the time travelling discussion. The images of the past in her works are fluid and fuzzy, they are refracted through subsequent experience and present mood, giving birth to the memories of the future. True-to-life vision, deep reflection, recalling and recreating the fragments lost in memory are combined into impressionistic and abstract painting. Representation of impressions immediacy and memory inconstancy is also empowered by special technique: linseed oil instead of solvent leaves a place for unpredictability, chance, and with it, life itself.
