These Neon paintings by Maya Hayuk prove that this New York-born artist is no stranger to bold colors and design. Hayuk's art is created through a blending of graphic design, graffiti, paint and murals. These paintings were created by using a crosshatch pattern that mixes a bunch of various neon colors. Her brightly colored graphic work is never limited to just lines. Kayuk allows her paints to drip down in the line below it, creating a melting effect. According to her website, Maya Hayuk has an "obsession with symmetry and nourish(es) color play."

Maya Hayuk was originally a street artist, and her neon paintings are just the beginning of a larger collection of paintings that are featured in large murals around the house and on the street.
