LILIANA A. ROMERO
Lilophilia is the moniker of Liliana A. Romero, an Afro-Columbian Artist based in London. She uses references to African traditions, Colombian street art and advertising to build her powerful and confronting aesthetic, underpinned by a celebration of black womanhood. The thin narrow format of some of Liliana's prints mimic the format of advertising posters on the streets of Colombia. Much of her work maintains a socio-political narrative.
She studied Independent Illustration at SVA New York, and graduated BA in visual arts at Pontificia Universidad Xaveriana at Bogota, Colombia. She has recently graduated from MA print Camberwell, where she was awarded the East London Printmakers prize. She was selected to show at 'London Grads now' at Saatchi Gallery 2020.
