About the artist

Though this page is by no means a complete collection of the artist's work, herein the viewer can enjoy the different styles and approaches used by Nina Maxim, who is an impassioned artist based in Cyprus, a small island in the Mediterranean sea. 


Nina’s paintings include amazing effects of light, shadow, colour and the natural beauty that she sees in everyday items. Full of stories, memories, vintage flair and a variety of motives, her paintings are not limited to one style, but rather an extensive mixture of experiences and passion. Through her work, viewers enjoy the opportunity to see a different angle to all those things we are used to seeing regularly suddenly take on a new light, an transformed tale and a fresh perspective.
