Maya Erdelyi is a Boston and NYC/LA based award-winning animation artist. She creates intricate hand-made animations and collages inspired by imaginary worlds, memories and the unconscious. Maya’s work utilizes a hybrid approach to cut-paper stop-motion, puppetry, drawn and computer animation, and installation.

Her work has been shown in national and international film festivals, galleries, museums and DIY venues. She is a recipient of a 2019 Yaddo Residency, a 2018 WGBH Launchpad Residency, a 2017 Brother Thomas Fellowship Award and the 2017 Massachusetts Cultural Council Fellowship in Film. Her most recent project was as curator of the group animation show The Skin Has Eyes: Animated Visions at the Mills Gallery in Boston.

Maya is a 2012 MFA graduate in Experimental Animation from CalArts, and is working on her first documentary animation entitled, “Anyuka,” which will include a large-scale public art project entitled, “Walk Cycle.” She is the co-founder of Goose & Hummingbird, a mom and pop animation studio that she runs with her animator husband in Boston.

Maya is currently a faculty member with us in the Animation and Motion Media department and also the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University.
