María Korol's artistic practice is firmly rooted in drawing and painting, including explorations in three-dimensional formats and interdisciplinary collaborations. She is interested in storytelling and the imagination, history and its distortions, and humor. Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1980, she was exiled for four years in Brazil during the military dictatorship and later returned to grow up in her home country. She moved to the United States in 2004. Korol has shown her paintings and drawings nationally and internationally in places like Bogotá, New York, Berlin, and Atlanta, among other cities. Her artwork is in numerous private collections and in those of the University of California-Irvine and Agnes Scott College. She is a distinguished fellow of the Junge Akademie der Künste, the Hambidge Center, and the Women's Art Institute. She is the recipient of the 2020 Edge Award with the Forward Arts Foundation, and was selected for The Creatives Project and the Hughley Fellowship. Based in Atlanta, she is a visiting professor at Agnes Scott College.
