Hannah Maybank is a British artist best known for the ripped and distressed surfaces of her three dimensional paintings in acrylic. Her work is an exploration into the subject of decay and renewal. By using the physicality of paint, repetition, reaction and the subject of flora her works hold an implied or actual 'life' of their own beyond completion. She graduated from an MA in Painting at the Royal College of Art, London, in 1999, following a BA (Hons) Fine Art from Liverpool John Moores University. She lives and works in London.
