About Liliana Marquez

I am what I see.
See What I am.
SAMPLE MATERIALS
TRANSFORM INTO ART.
​Liliana Marquez, aka. "lilimarq," has been a resident of Boston MA since 1998. Born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela, her family encouraged her to express herself through art in a fun, creative, and multicultural environment full of music, dance, literature, film, photography, sculpture, and painting.
She has a BA in Art and Graphic Design from the prestigious Caracas Institute of Design in Venezuela.
Explaining her philosophy of art, Liliana says, “we live in a mass production era where we have a wonderful world full of extra sample materials, so I decided to incorporate as much re-claimed and surplus materials as possible in all my designs... I called it RE POP ART.
I achieve great satisfaction in knowing that I am able to transform surplus and discarded materials into art and receive even more pleasure when I see the smiles from those who enjoy my work.”
Mainly focused on working in 3D , Liliana designs lamps, furniture and produces art to create an inspiring message of life, hope, and positive energy. She also works performing creative workshops for young children in local schools to help them explore language, structure, shape, color, and their own unique qualities through our "learning by doing" process. These workshops highly encourage children to use recycled and sample materials while creatively repurposing them to create small sculptures.
