Maya Fuhr

JO-HS Residency September 2023

Maya Fuhr grew up in Victoria, British Columbia with a sense of separation from the outside world. A young girl with nowhere to escape to, she explored the world via magazines and her imagination. This might be most felt in her irreverent approach to fashion, where precious conventions give way to satire and subculture. Throughout her career, Maya has lived and worked between New York, Los Angeles, Montreal and Toronto, giving her a diverse arsenal of taste and cultural influences. Being part of a close-knit community of artists that share many of Maya’s sensibilities has also deeply shaped her approach. There is a fluidity with which she merges other visual languages with her own, from dynamic and unconventional collaborations through to personal diptychs of art and photography that enhance and speak to each other. Roving from fashion to portraiture, object to subject, Maya Fuhr’s pieces are a call and response, reminding us that a world beyond this one is just a click away.
