Lisbon, Portugal, 1982
Ana Velez has participated in several solo and group exhibitions at the institutional level, but also in collective projects of urban art.
In her work she has established drawing as a directional tool, inquiring about its multiple material possibilities, which led her to develop her work also in the public space. There she made a series of pictorial interventions on damaged or already vanished buildings.
She addresses themes that go around the concept of identity, based on three ideas: place, memory and body, highlighting place as the container of memory and identity.
