Ada Trillo

Ada trillo

Ada is an interdisciplinary artist working primarily with photography and images rendered in print on a variety of surfaces such as plexiglass, gold leaf and paper. She was born in El Paso TX and grew-up in Juarez, Mexico and currently live in Philadelphia. Her body of work is linked with Latino culture and towns along the US Mexico border. A common theme throughout her work is exposing the violence that exists as a result of dehumanization of Latino immigrants as well as the lack of economic opportunities which result in violent drug trafficking and the sexual exploitation of women. Her work has been featured in The Huffington Post, CBS Philly, Al Dia News, and Telemundo 51 and has been included in the Philadelphia Museum of Art's permanent collection and selected Best Series in the Black and White International Awards. She studied in Italy and Philadelphia, and her work has been shown in solo, two-person, and group exhibitions. She also speaks at conferences and universities regarding women’s issues and human trafficking.
