"People Deserve the Freedom of Expression"
-Hanna, Founder of MAYA MOVA
Hanna is a Belarusian – born designer living in North California since 2010. She began her career as graphic artist and currently works full time as a user expirience designer in FinTech space. When in 2020 Europe’s longest-serving autocrat Alexander Lukashenko, often described as Europe’s “last dictator” declared victory in a rigged election and “won” his sixth consecutive term with over 80% of the votes – violent goverement assaults against peaceful protestants led to 3,000 arrests in Minsk and other cities. Police fired tear gas, rubber bullets, and stun grenades to disperse protestors. Further nights of violence saw another 3,700 arrests throughout the country. Lukashenko’s loyal special forces were beating people without mercy, treating with extreme brutality, torturing and raping, and holding people as a cattle in the overcrowded cells. Unable to stay indifferent to this tyranny Hanna was searching for a way to help her home country and to bring international awareness to what’s happening in Belarus. This is how project Maya Mova was born. Using her tool of the trade – design, Hanna creates artwork that is inspired by Belarussian culture and symbols of freedom and turns it into apparel. Apparel designed with a purpose. Apparel that speaks freedom – Maya Mova.
