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. She is a recipient of the 2017 Brother Thomas Fellowship Award and the 2017 Massachusetts Cultural Council Fellowship in Film, and is currently an artist-in-residence at the Boston Center for the Arts.

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.” 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 in Boston.
