Maya Erdelyi is a NYC and LA based animator, director, and artist. She creates intricate hand-made animations and collages inspired by imaginary worlds, memories, and the unconscious. Shown in various national and international film festivals, galleries and museums, her award-winning animations utilize a hybrid experimental approach to cut-paper stop-motion, puppetry, hand-drawn, and computer animation processes. Maya is a 2012 MFA graduate in Experimental Animation from CalArts, and is represented by 6PointMedia, a Hollywood Animation Studio. Personal projects include a new film in the works called "Anyuka"—an abstract animated short documentary, and a children's book about beasts.

Clients and collaborators include: VICE, Intel, CDN, TV on the Radio, Michel Gondry, Aaron Rose, Levi's, Toyota, BRIC media, and FAKE BAND COLLECTIVE among others.
