Eliana Heredia represents a blend of cultures. Born in Brazil, she was raised in Argentina and has lived in Berlin for the last several years. Her work reflects this mixture of influences, expressing a very particular aesthetic. Heredia began her artistic experience at the age of seven when she took drawing and painting classes with her brothers. She was the only one in her family to follow this path, however, and for 10 years, she never missed her weekly classes.
