In New York, Maya Hayuk’s Answer to the Winter Blues
Art & Design
New Yorkers weary of an endless winter and its accompanying bone-chilling temperatures may be forgiven for finding a bright spot wherever possible—even on the traffic-clogged corner of Bowery and Houston Streets. There, the Brooklyn-based artist Maya Hayuk has created a blindingly color-saturated mural using her signature cross-hatch geometric strokes. The latest in a stellar lineup of artists commissioned to make their mark on the wall that serves as revolving public gallery space, Hayuk gamely braved the arctic chill to give New Yorkers a much-needed dose of visual energy—and a welcome antidote to the winter blues.
