Artist Talk with Lilophilia

Date for your diary!

The next talk in the ELP Talks Print series is on the fabulous young artist, Lilophilia.

FREE and ALL WELCOME, the talk will be on Zoom at 7.30pm on Thursday November 11th.

Click on the link below to join us for a special insight into the creative life of this Latin American-Colombian artist talking about the influences that underpin her art practice.

Lilophilia’s screenprints boldly shout for the endangered communities of Latin America and Colombia – LGBTQ, refugees, and victims of domestic violence – and reflect how black bodies have repeatedly been attacked, manipulated, exoticised and disowned.

A particular focus is the loss of collective cultural memory caused by the long-term simulation and imposition of a systematic white society in Colombia, gradually erasing the indigenous  heritage and leaving a blank space inside contemporary black individuals.

Lilophilia studied Visual Art at the Pontificia Universidad Xaveriana, Bogota, and she came to the UK to do her MA in Printmaking at Camberwell, University of Arts in 2018. On graduating she won the 2020 East London Printmaker’s prize, and since graduating she has exhibited at Saatchi Gallery, Anna Lovely Gallery and FAWW Gallery. She now lives and works in London.
