Captivating abstract artworks by LA-based Maura Segal transform acrylic and paper

With titles such as Strawberry Milk and Orange Peel, these abstract paintings are simply delightful. Los Angeles-based artist Maura Segal is the creator, making multi-layered works from paper and acrylic paint.

She is deeply inspired by the Los Angeles landscape and lifestyle, from the sun-drenched plants to the bustling network of intertwining urban roads and intersections. She "feels a relationship between these coexisting elements reflected in the juxtaposition of dense, geometric paper forms and the free, expressive and rhythmic lines."

Los Angeles, California is home to Maura, where she also has a studio. She received her BA from California State University, Northridge in Graphic Design – an influence that can be seen throughout her pieces.

Maura currently has works at the Martin Luther King Jr. Hospital, in Los Angeles, a private collection in San Diego, California and the Albemarle Facility in Charlotte, North Carolina. Her works are also exhibited at Ann Connelly Fine Art, Baton Rouge, SLATE art, Oakland, Amy Simon, Westport, Sozo Gallery, Charlotte, Matthew Rachman, Chicago and Kobalt Gallery, Provincetown.
