Profile and About MAXINE NIENOW

Born in Mexico, Maxine Nienow grew up surrounded by the exuberant color, beauty and violence inherent in her culture. In her work, Maxine seeks to expose cultural and economic disparity, and help heal the human condition through beauty, art and collaboration.

Prior to earning her BFA in Photography at Parson’s School of Design NY, Maxine studied painting in Paris and Cultural Studies in Cuba and UC Berkeley. Her extensive set of skills have led her to multidisciplinary projects that have included painting, photography, community building and art direction of music videos for Latin Grammy-winning Mexican band Reik.

In 2012, Maxine co-created FlutuArte, where 45 international artists joined to paint murals on the rooftops of 60 fishing boats in a historic harbor in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. FlutuArte brought not only new vibrant colors to this fishing community but also a new economy of tourism.

Outside of the streets Maxine has exhibited at the Hermitage Museum in Russia, Art Basel, Miami, The Armory, New York and all over North and South America.

Most recently, Maxine has created and currently runs the New York studio for Shameless Photography, a retro inspired body positive company who's mission is to create a space for women to feel safe, beautiful and empowered through photography.

Maxine currently lives, works in and is constantly inspired by New York City.
