About the Artists

1982 Lisbon, Portugal

Ana Velez (born 1982). Lives and works in Lisbon, Portugal. Her work has been marked by solo and group exhibitions at the institutional level, but also by collective projects of urban art. She is co-founder and active member of Vazarte, a multidisciplinary collective dedicated to create reflective art projects, art spaces and urban art creations. 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.

She is co-founder and active member of Vazarte, a multidisciplinary collective dedicated to creating reflective art projects, art spaces and urban art creations. In 2015, she also co-founded Atelier Contencioso with three other artists, with whom she shares a workspace and authorship of the artistic interventions at Rio Maravilha [Lisbon, Portugal] and the installations Mamba-de-Jameson, on the facade of Pensão Amor [Lisbon, Portugal], and Das Dez ao Meio-Dia [Óbidos, Portugal].

Her work is part of several institutional and private collections, both national and international.
