Eilen Itzel Mena

Los Angeles


American b. 1994   —   I am an Afro-Dominican multimedia artist and community organizer from the South Bronx currently based in Los Angeles. I graduated from the University of Southern California in 2017, with a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts. My visual arts practice synthesizes Abstract Expressionism, Surrealism and African Diasporic spiritual frameworks through painting and performance work. In my social practice, I serve as a Co-Director and creative collaborator for Honey and Smoke, a global artist community and platform focused on creating space for artists to meditate on the important themes of our time through themed seasons. It is a conceptual project that explores these themes through new media and interactive digital content. I have shown my work in New York, San Francisco, Miami and London and have been covered by various publications such as the New York Times, Cultured Magazine, Mujerista, Artnet, Hyperallergic, and It’s Nice That Magazine amongst others. In 2018, I participated in the LSI Artist Residency in London, UK organized by the UCL Slade School of Fine Arts and the Camden Arts Center. I am currently an artist in residence for Zeal’s Studio Incubator Program in Inglewood, CA. Zeal is a creative agency and co-op creating spaces for Black Artists across the diaspora to thrive. Through Zeal, I also curated the exhibition Who Owns Black Art? in Miami during Art Basel 2019.
