BIO

Born and raised in Queens, NY, ILANA DI MARCO is a multi- disciplined musician, visual artist and photographer.

An unstoppable creative force and one-woman band since she first picked up an instrument at age 4, Ilana honed her conceptual artistic talents at the School of Visual Arts, where she earned a BFA in Photography & Video and met her mentor, Gerard Way, former frontman of My Chemical Romance.

Inspired by Goth culture and dark aesthetics, much of Ilana's personal artwork centers on the duality of life and death, love and lust. These subjects are most extensively explored through her self- titled fashion collection, DI MARCO.

 
ILANA’S WORK HAS A VULNERABILITY TO IT, MIXED WITH A KIND OF INTIMATE SOUL BEARING VIEW ON RELATIONSHIPS AND THE INNER AND OUTER WORLD.
