Maria Goundry is an English and Italian multimedia Artist based in London. She creates paintings, illustrations, multi media pieces and writes poetry. She loves working with bright colours and unusual materials and experiments with surface manipulation. She combines materials that wouldn't commonly go together to create something new. She aims to create a singular universe in which different medias, materials and realities can come together as one in her unique detailed maximalist aesthetic. Maria’s work often explores a variety of topics including identity, personal feelings and the relationship with the inner self and the outside world. The surreal mind and physical realities. Her work is inspired by her day to day life, experiences and challenges she faces, it is an expression of her inner self. Having struggled with mental health issues for a long time, this theme inevitably comes up in her work.
