"And so it is that the encounter between spirituality and science becomes a fascinating crossroads of humanity, where the search for meaning merges with investigation and discovery.
Maria Boström's aim is to explore the convergence of these two dimensions, emphasizing the intrinsic beauty of creation and the mysterious energies that bind every aspect of the universe."
About Maria Boström
Maria Boström was born in Jakobstad, Finland, where from an early age she began to develop a deep interest in art, spending many hours in the studio of her artist uncle Bo Aurens. After high school, Maria attended Västra Nyland's Art Program in Karis, Finland, where she came into contact with various personalities, who gave her the opportunity to explore numerous mediums and disciplines, allowing her to evolve in her artistic experience. What really marked her artistic career was her move to Hong Kong in 1989, where she chose to spend several years. Before her return to Northern Europe, Maria decided to see the world, travelling and letting each experience imprint itself on her path, colouring her personality as well as her artistic expressiveness. In fact, she only returned to settle in Stockholm in 1997, bringing with her a much broader cultural background and a new artistic maturity oriented towards abstraction.
Maria is now able to perceive signals and vibrations with greater intensity, managing to channel that energy untied from consciousness, which tends to escape our gaze. Indeed, it is precisely there, where we dare not explore, that Maria goes in search of answers. The soul communicates through the brush and magic meets emotion. Starting in 2017, following her first solo exhibition "Trinus", Maria's artistic career evolved rapidly. Already in 2018, a new exhibition - "Temperment Fragment" - opens in Öregrund, at the Ekan Gallery, followed by the "Raw Elegance" project, featuring her art on limited edition carpets, in collaboration with the Dutch design house Moooi. Then, in 2019, thanks to the great success of her solo exhibition "Ma", held at No18 in Stockholm, Maria's art began to be popular throughout Scandinavia, opening new doors for her artistic career soon to Europe.
Since 2020, in fact, her works have also featured in several exhibitions in Spain and Italy: 2020 exhibition at Allé på Österlen together with photographer Tina Axelsson; 2020 solo exhibition at Galleri Melefors; 2021 solo exhibition "ZANSHIN" at Wisby Galleri; 2021 Affordable Art Fair in Stockholm; 2022 exhibition at Galleri Sjöhästen Nyköping together with Mats Wieslander and Robert Oldergaarden; 2022 Maria is represented by Amsterdam Living and House of Avinyo in Barcelona; 2022 solo exhibition "ACTAM REM AGO" at Sigtuna Kulturgård; 2022 "Liquid Arsenal" exhibition at M. A.D.S. Art Gallery represented by curator Francesca Brunello; 2022 "Brain Cake" exhibition at Casa Milà (La Pedrera) in Barcelona represented by curator Francesca Brunello; 2023 "Interferences" exhibition at M.A.D.S. Art Gallery represented by curator Francesca Brunello.
To date, Maria's creativity and personality continue to grow, never ceasing to fascinate us viscerally. Her profound sensitivity allows her to read and perceive her surroundings and to see clearly those signs that the past has left her. Form, color and harmony for her are like oxygen to be breathed in, to narrate an amalgamation of otherwise unknown emotions, giving us the possibility to look beyond.
