Maya Green -born Maya Greenblat, is a Ukrainian-Jewish contemporary painter, graphic artist, illustrator and sculptor.
"I have been an artist my whole life.
Originally, i was born and raised in Ukraine and I first developed my love of art there. Since my childhood, I have been intrigued with the patterning of light and the interaction of color.
I studied at the School of Art in Ukraine.

On 1978 I graduated from the Facility of Art. In 1996 I moved to Israel and settled in Tiberias, where I continued to pursue my passion as an artist and sculptor. Lived in Enakievo, Donetsk, Nizhnevartovsk, Anapa,Tiberias, New York, Saint Paul.
Now, I live and work between Tel Aviv and Los Angeles. I consider myself as a global citizen .Painting connects me to the world and allows me to express myself and translate what I see and feel onto canvas and paper".
