Ana Júlia Vilela

Ana Júlia Vilela’s poetics predominantly navigates through the language of painting, where she explores various formal themes such as abstraction, figuration, and landscape. Her work is characterized by the idea of a non-linear narrative, which highlights the complexities of contemporaneity and its emotional nuances. With a multifaceted approach, the artist reworks the instant vocabulary of social media, creating her own iconography. In her pieces, Ana Júlia employs words, monochromes, and metaphorical figures to weave cultural commentaries and explore the concepts of end and impermanence.

She was awarded at the 43rd Ribeirão Preto Art Salon (2018), and her works were added to the city’s public collection. Additionally, her pieces are part of the MACRS collection and the Viafarini Foundation (Italy). In 2018, she received an honorable mention at the Sesc-DF Arts Biennial. Her solo exhibitions include: “No Sign of Rain,” Casa Parque Gallery, Brasília (2023); “The Romance Died,” Ecarta Gallery, Porto Alegre (2021); “All Tomorrow’s Parties,” Central Galeria, São Paulo (2021); “The Death of a Party,” Ribeirão Preto Art Museum (2019); “The Sound of Eyes,” Municipal Museum Casa da Memória, Cajamar (2012).
