Maya Burman

Brief Profile:

Born 1971 in France, Maya Burman comes with an artistic lineage; parents Sakti Burman and Maite Delteil, both being very prominent artists.

 

She works mainly in pen and ink, and watercolor; her paintings are delicate and usually have a strong fantasy element. The striking thing about her paintings is the amount of detail in them.

 

In formal terms Maya Burman's paintings have a tapestry like effect where everything is subordinate to patterning, reminiscent of the French art nouveau tradition and European Middle Age architecture in the country where she lives, interlaced with mythical and folk inspired imagery somewhat akin to miniature painting, that stem from her Indian ancestry, the work makes an interesting melting pot, a meeting ground between the two cultures.

 

Besides her drawings and paintings on paper and canvas using watercolour, ink, colour pencil and mixed media, she has also done some illustrations including cover for a book by Satyajit Ray and a poster for a performance of GirishKarnad’s “Hayavadana” play in France.

 

Her compositions are mostly figurative and change according to her mood. Ms.Burman lives in Paris but in her paintings she retires to a land of lyricism and allegory.

Qualification: 3 Years of Architecture in Paris
