Chinon Maria, the artist behind Maven Murals, was born and raised on the ski slopes of Vermont. It was in her childhood home where she first began cultivating her creative path secretly drawing and painting on the walls of her home. Chinon attended the Pont-Aven School of Contemporary Art in France, undergraduate programs through the Rhode Island School of Design and graduated with a BFA from Montana State University where she was captain of NCAA DI Alpine Ski Team.
Chinon Maria's Colombian roots have greatly impacted her use of a vibrant colorful palette utilizing traditional indigenous patterns while her lifelong influences include the golden age of illustration, drag queens, urban street art, Victorian textile design and the fashion industry.
Her personal work depicts many faces of "dolls" both beautiful, alluring and innocent, while all seemingly to be slightly questioning their role in society. Today, she splits her time between New York and Europe. She likes to skip, wear big bows, and sometimes red lipstick. Her theme song is Killer Queen by QUEEN.
Chinon Maria has exhibited her work internationally in galleries throughout North America and Europe
