Maya Burman

Maya Burman is a contemporary artist of Indian parentage living in France. She works mainly in pen and ink, and watercolour; her paintings are delicate and usually have a strong fantasy element. The striking thing about her paintings is the amount of detail in them. In formal terms Maya Burman's paintings have a tapestry like effect where everything is subordinate to patterning, reminiscent of the French art nouveau tradition. The figures have an archetypal aura about them and their rendering in a clean decisive manner has its sources in Picasso's later classical period, his return after the war into an idyllic land inhabited by healthy and young boys of Athenian ideal. Maya Burman, is the daughter of the well-known painter Sakti Burman. She has had several exhibitions of her work in India, France, and the UK, and won several prizes. Ms. Burman lives in Paris but in her paintings she retires to a land of lyricism and allegory .
