Maxim has not been formally trained at an art institution, instead he is a self taught artist based between London and Bath.
“My paintings aim to capture the emotion, energy and the timeless quality of traditional (often classical) figurative oil paintings. Broad, confident brush strokes of rich colour
create semi-abstracted forms that stylistically contrast with the art that serves as an inspiration for my work. These signature sweeping brush strokes give my paintings a sense of movement and a visceral presence, while also introducing an abstract impressionism that further gives the paintings an identity of their own”. - Maxim.
