Curriculum Vitae - Liliana Folta | Visual Artist

Present:

“Formation/Deformation” Work in Progress – Artist Studio – Berlin:

This new body of works represents a visual interpretation of aspects found between the imaginary and the ordinary. It symbolizes a reference to the environment, taking into consideration the planet’s reaction to human behavior.

Incorporating surrealist and semi-abstract elements, I make use of this conceptual framework to investigate the ecosystem, socio-political interests and personal experiences.
