Maya Perry

Born 1994 in New York City, lives and works in Tel Aviv.

Maya Perry works with drawing, experimental animation, and installation techniques. Her work revolves around the psychology of trauma by emphasizing how moments of intimacy and vulnerability intersect with memories of violence and manipulation.

Perry holds a BFA from Minshar School of Art, Tel Aviv, and has also studied painting and drawing at the Avni Institute of Fine Art, Tel Aviv. She exhibited in solo and duo exhibitions at the Alfred and Maya Galleries, and her works were in group exhibitions in venues such as the Steinhardt Museum of Natural History in Tel Aviv, the Tribeca Art Center, New York, and the Refrigerator in Tel Aviv. Perry is the recipient of the 2019 Zoom Prize for a young Israeli artist.
