Ileana Moreno

Born in 1989 in the vibrant embrace of Mexico City, Ileana Moreno holds a Bachelor’s degree in Visual Arts from the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México. Complementing her formal education, she has expanded her knowledge with a degree in Fashion Design and Pattern Making from the Zeitgeist Institute. Moreno's artistic toolkit encompasses traditional mediums like painting and sculpture, as well as unconventional elements associated with fashion, including glitter, synthetic hair, and plastic.

Her work intricately weaves an interest in historical rituals and deities with a profound exploration of the present condition of the female body. Moreno skillfully integrates elements of pop culture traditionally associated with femininity into pre-Hispanic symbology and representations, creating hybrid images that appear to exist in an alternate future time. Through speculation and a playful lens, she reimagines established narratives, subverting conventional interpretations of the past.

Moreno's creative journey has resulted in solo exhibitions at venues such as Biquini Wax EPS, Ladrón Galería, Estudio Marte, and Luis Galería. Her impact is equally resonant in group exhibitions, including showcases at venues such as Salón Silicón, Zona Maco, Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, the Centro Nacional de las Artes, the Bienal Nacional de Monterrey, and the Bienal UNAM Artes Visuales at the Museo Universitario de Ciencia y Artes (MUCA).
