First-generation Cuban-American and Miami, FL native Aileen Quintana, also known as Haiiileen, is an interdisciplinary artist known for her neo-acid experimental works that span through several different mediums and facets. Her dedication to the local artistic community fuels her capacity to create and tear down the boundaries that have yet to be explored within her own mind. Her initial breakthrough as a self-taught makeup artist led her to build a highly successful career utilizing faces as her canvases.
After working over 10 years within the fashion and media industries, Haiiileen marked her transition into the world of art through her first experimental installation, “Aileen’s Aliens.” Now working as a multi-dimensional mixed media artist, her vision creates a combustion of sound, light, and color transporting her viewers to transcendent alternate worlds by bringing her synesthetic visions to life. Haiiileen continuously exhibits her ability to create thought-provoking material that provides a deep expression and experimental approach to our environmental perceptions and conventional ideas of reality through her work.
Haiiileen has worked on several commissions for III Points, Space Miami, SoHo Beach House, The City of Miami Beach, Art Basel, Frost Museum of Science and more. Haiiileen has recently displayed her latest installation, “Ora,” at the Young at Art Museum in Davie, FL. Currently, she is working on her first solo exhibition, “Lightscapes,” at the Young At Art Museum set to open November 2018.
Haiiileen works as a consultant, director, producer, designer, filmmaker, performance artist, sculpture, installation artist.
