Maria Petroff — сontemporary portrait painter

Maria Petroff is a contemporary self-taught artist inspired by controversial people who make a certain impact on our society. Their personas are admired and loved or hated and mocked. Maria is just an unbiased observer whose goal is to evoke emotions from the viewers. The french artist, Edgar Degas, once said: “Art is not what you see, but what you make others see”. This quote is very accurate. No matter what you want to express through a piece of art, the viewer will see it his own way, will have his own perception. Which is great as art is here to make people think.

Maria Petroff is based in Montreal (Canada).
