Lana Corujo is an artist who works mainly in illustration and writing. She studied Illustration and Design at the School of Art in Madrid, and in the field of writing she has participated in the anthology Diarios del Encierro (Ed. Indigo) and the poetry book Ropavieja (2021, Ed. Dieciséis), a title that enabled her to attend as a guest at the Frankfurt Book Fair in 2022 by the hand of the Ministry of Culture of Spain. She has exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Lanzarote in 2022 under a grant-residency of artistic creation, and is currently director of the Verbena Literature Festival and the Festival Órbitas de Juventud y Pensamiento, both located on the island of Lanzarote, Spain. She has curated the exhibition Tayó: jugando entre líneas at the Centro de Innovación Cultural El Almacén.
Lana’s creative process is crossed by writing and pictorial creation, especially in the techniques linked to illustration. Also, growing up and living on an island like Lanzarote has made her have a vision towards the landscape (of the territory and the social) that links a lot to authors from Latin American countries. Lana is especially interested in knowing and researching about Argentinean writers such as Olivia Gallo, Selva Almada, Belén López Peiró or Roberta Iannamico to create bridges and synergies between the insular and narrative territory of Lanzarote and Argentina, investigating the complexity of their cultural movements due to the ultraperipheral environments.
