Maria Korol, MFA, is an artist and she teaches studio art courses.

María Korol’s artistic practice is firmly rooted in drawing and painting, and it includes explorations in three-dimensional formats and interdisciplinary collaborations. She is interested in storytelling, history and its distortions, memory, and transformation. Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1980, in the middle of a military dictatorship, she was exiled to Brazil for four years and later returned to grow up in her home country. She moved to the United States in 2004. Korol has shown her work nationally and internationally at MOCA GA and Swan Coach House Gallery in Atlanta, The Painting Center in New York, and the Akademie der Künste in Berlin, among other places. Her artwork is in numerous private collections and in those of the University of California at Irvine and Agnes Scott College. She is a distinguished fellow of the Junge Akademie der Künste, the Hambidge Center, and the Women’s Art Institute. She is the recipient of the 2020 Edge Award with the Forward Arts Foundation and was selected for The Creatives Project and the Hughley Fellowship. Her work has been published in ART PAPERS, Burnaway, and ArtsATL. Based in Atlanta, she is a visiting assistant professor of art at Morehouse College. María Korol is represented by Marcia Wood Gallery.
