Born and raised in Russia, Maryam Golubeva is a British artist currently residing and working in Lancaster, UK. Maryam uses traditional Russian paper-cutting and engraving techniques to deliver a cross-cultural narrative that aims to re-establish the deep seated historic bonds between the East and West. She has been actively involved in “Apna” - a community project that celebrates Islamic cultural heritage. As part of this project, Maryam created a massive 9 ft. by 5 ft. single sheet paper cut installations for the exhibition space as well as delivering a series of workshops for the local community groups.
Her art has been showcased at MOCAfest at the Global Islamic Economic Forum in Dubai and Malaysia. In 2015 and 2016 she was also shortlisted for Muslim News Alhambra Award for Excellence in Arts. In 2019, Maryam debuted her new collection of work at a solo exhibition in Riga, Latvia to critical acclaim.
