Maria G. Balazova

Maria's artwork is closely connected to glass, its metamorphoses, gradation, and refraction of colourful spectrum. Most of her paintings are made by mixing techniques, mostly painting with acrylic and oils on canvas and wooden sheets. Her favourite technique consists of drawing using oily pastel into the acrylics and adding glass powder, glass or other materials.
