My name is Maja Lionello, I’m a young self taught artist hoping to live an interesting life. I’m originally from Italy and was lucky and bold enough to leave my nest and travel, spending the last five years refining my craft while moving from Australia, to India, to finally here. The journey brought me harsh struggles, dark corners and beautiful, empowering experiences which shaped my artistic voice and generated in me a love and interest in the concepts of change and contradiction.
My work wishes to express certain strong emotions we all go through in different stages of life. Using pose and movement to capture the essence of human struggle from existential anguish to the search for bliss and enlightenment, centering my themes around transformation and affirmation.
