Yanelis Mora Morales

Yanelis Mora Morales was born in Holguín (Cuba) in 1984. She studied music in Havana and graduated with a specialization in Choral Conducting and Dramatic Art. From 2003 to 2019 she worked as a theater, radio, and television actress and was awarded “Best Female Performance” three times.

In 2017 she began working as a visual artist, primarily developing a patchwork technique called “foundation paper piecing”, through which she creates small and large textile works.

Her recent exhibitions include “Memoria Oculta” (Solo Show) at Browntone Foundation in Paris, The Art Basel Paris 2023 event, “Women and Visual Arts of the 21st Century”, III Edition of the Contemporary Art Biennial, La Iberoamericana de Alcala, 2023, and “Consonancia” at the Tomas y Valiente Art Center in Madrid, 2024.

In April – May of this year, The Rockerfeller Brothers Fund and The Cuban Artists Fund awarded her the Residency Unlimited grant in New York.

Yanelis is currently preparing for a group exhibition in June 2024 with Galleria Continua in Paris.
