Lila Afiouni was born and raised in Australia. She studied fine art at the National Art School, receiving a Bachelor of Fine Art with Honors in Drawing. Her discipline varies from painting and drawing to installation. She completed a series of paintings based on the theme of radios, their aesthetic and the metaphysics of connectivity between radio and listener. This series was shown at the annual Google Show at Hardware Gallery in Sydney, 2010.
Lila was awarded a studio residency at the Cite Internationale des Arts in Paris by the Power Institute of Art and Culture. She has been a resident artist both at Root Division, San Francisco and Firstdraft Depot in Sydney in 2011.
Of her current practise, she writes:
"I am always searching for a way to define the boundary between aesthetic, meaning and discovery. My love of painting allows me to construct abstract thoughts that are yet unwritten and unknown. Through painting I can establish what cannot be articulated in words as I fashion my own language based on an artificial construct of geometry and organic shapes. What takes place is an interior thought pattern composed of balance and harmony on the canvas."
