Maya Hewitt is an English painter whose work has a subtle Asian influence, inspired by Japanese culture as well as by her half-Filipino heritage. A talented figurative painter, Hewitt’s exotic narrative landscapes form an artificial space, constructed and staged in a state of suspension. They travel between the real and the fictional, between human and supernatural energies, and between artifice and nature. Her paintings are presented as environments of connecting plots or pieces within a larger narrative, and use symbols to explore the notion of reality and fiction. Personal symbolic objects draw references from across time, cultures and myths.
Maya’s artworks had been collected not only in Europe but also widely in Asian countries.
