Liana Bortolozzo aka Laliana was born in Venice, Italy, she lives and works in London and has exhibited extensively in UK and abroad.

Laliana studied at the Venice Academy of Fine Arts in Italy graduating with a Bachelor Degree in painting and visual arts and at the Chelsea College of Arts in London obtaining an Master in Fine Arts.

Laliana's work encompasses performance, painting, drawing, video and installations.

Her art embraces traditional crafts such as needlework and china-painting but also live site responsive performance. She often works in collaboration with other artists including dancers and music composers.

Through a sense of the absurd and quirky humour, Laliana talks about herself and about her relationship with the surrounding world, trying to give a personal answer and interpretation to the daily dilemmas and paradoxes, and mixing her imagination with the reality. She explores and investigates social issues and personal attitudes 

with a wry and challenging point of view. Laliana is deeply engaged with the problem of the negative and distorted representation of women in our society.
