Ilana has become a multimedia artist by the Kunsthochschule für Medien Köln, Germany, and a designer by Escola Superior de Desenho Industrial, Rio de Janeiro (ESDI/UERJ). Her formation derives from  multiple experiences of learning and improvement, from jobs at important design and art bureau’s to single projects with artists. 


Often integrated to documental film artworks, the watercolor animations produced by this artist have been granting her good recognition, expressed through diverse prizes and invitations. Technical mastery and free creativity give way to a unique form of aesthetic composition, which axis is placed at a mediation between digital and artisanal languages.


Ultimately, Ilana has been giving special attention to the thematics of color and movement, filling with life the opacity and inertia of different expression surfaces and spaces. Part of this effort relies on an engagement with multiple levels and kinds of conscience and perception: creative impulse and intelectual reflection are united at a PhD research process, under development at ESDI/UERJ.
