Maija Kurševa (1981) is a masterly illustrator, teller of absurd stories and enfant terrible of the Latvian art scene. Taking an active part in artist collective Popper Publishing and organizing Riga Zine Fest, she is also teaching illustration, composition and silkscreen at the Art Academy of Latvia. Her savage and illustrative artworks are highly appreciated by the youngest audience, confirming the similarity between the worldview of the artists and children. Since 2004, Kurševa has participated in exhibitions in Latvia and abroad, and her installation Dzīvesprieks [Joviality] was nominated for the Purvītis Prize (2016).
