Maria lives and works in Brighton, UK, and is a contemporary artist best known for her bright and eclectic collages. Her scrapbook-style aesthetic is created by appropriating vintage ephemera and combining it with vivid, and often humorous, imagery.Read more
Maria adopts a fresh approach to collage by maintaining dialogue with cultures and imagery of the past and using the style to reflect the complex world we live in. We love the precision the artist applies to collating and assembling her compositions in order to find the perfect imagery to piece together each surreal artwork.
Maria studied 3D design at the University of Brighton. She has exhibited in both solo and group shows across the UK and Europe, as well as Hong Kong, Korea, and New York. Her artwork has been featured in The Times newspaper and in 2018 one of her artworks was selected for the Royal Academy’s 250th Summer Exhibition.
We’ve been working with Maria Rivans since 2010.
