Maryia Skarakhod Contemporary Abstract Artist. I am a Denver based abstract artist, living in the USA for 5 years and originally born in Belarus. When growing up I was watching my brother painting sea landscapes and was learning from his passion lot, this surrounding influenced my vision and future drive to pick up my brush and start painting myself. My art career had started after I moved to the new country and found myself in a new reality that evoked deep feelings in me that I am expressing now with the help of colors. After working in the finance sphere, I have shifted to the art career where I was self-teaching myself as well as working with art curators all over the world to bring the best of my skills on to the canvas. One of the messages that I deliver as an artist is that there is a strong connection between the people and nature. The duality of both realities exists in ourselves; we are able to find inner stars and the true light with the help of transforming energy delivered through my art. My goal is to bring people closer to their essence and evoke the raw energy of the body by perceiving the language of abstract reality and transforming it to the new states that will form the new reality. My art is the invitation to dive into the deep roots of the great beginning, a chance to connect with the true essence of oneself, whisper to follow the inner wisdom and a call for hidden feelings and raw energy to wake up. Are you willing to accept it?
