Bio

Gabriela Gil is interested in creating multilayered pieces that use organic shapes, rhythm, and vibrant colors that replicate nature, and lend tribute to her Latin American heritage. Her studio is based in New York City.

Born in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, Gabriela Gil has moved throughout South and North America her entire life. The constant migration has shaped her multicultural perspective, and nurtured her interest in art as a way to transcribe her personal experience using visual language. Her first creative expressions were in ballet and modern dance at the age of five, and later evolved to other mediums including photography, sculpture, and painting. As a result, her work often references her multidisciplinary experience, particularly as it relates to activating the entire body while staining a canvas, or carrying a gestural mark across a large surface.

As an autodidact, Gabriela Gil independently seeks out professional courses, mentorships, residencies, and experiences based on her evolving needs. She finds her practice shapes more dynamically and authentically this way, especially when complemented with her academic experience in Economics, and nearly a decade working within the innovative, and entrepreneurial culture of Silicon Valley tech start-ups.

Gabriela Gil currently lives and works in New York, NY.
