Maria Ierusalimskaya is an international artist based in Brooklyn, NY. She graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Yerevan, Armenia in 2006 and moved to NYC shortly after. In her work, she shows objects that normally don’t catch people’s attention or don’t seem important on their own. She tries to give them importance by immortalizing them through her drawings. Maria is currently working on her “Rainbow” portrait series, a body of work that she started shortly after the beginning of the pandemic.
