About the Artist
Maya Luthra (b.1997, UK) is an abstract British artist who uses painting as a tool to navigate her experiences as a woman of colour and as a platform for learning about colour theory. Maya's paintings focus mainly on considerations of colour and shape, in particular how slight tonal shifts in colour can alter the way they sit next to one another. Mixing and blending pre-existing colours is at the forefront of her practice and draws on her experience of being a person of mixed heritage – a mix of races, of colours, of identities. Maya lives and works in Manchester, UK.
