Mariia was born in Kyiv in 2003. She graduated from V.M. Mochanov Lyceum School No. 38. Mariia has been studying both economy and cinema at the Toronto University in Canada since 2020. She has created a range of short films as part of youth projects, as well as a full-length film, which was independently written and shot. In her free time, Mariia composes poetry, prose and writes film scripts for future cinema projects.
She considers art to be her biographer, therapist and best friend. “A drawing is not simply some paint on a canvas, it is sort of an X-ray image of the artist’s inner state at the period when a work is created,” Mariia Charuta says.
