"DRAWING THROUGH ITS LOOSE ASSOCIATION WITH PERSONAL UNFETTERED EXPRESSION, IS THE MEDIUM THROUGH WICH THE PAST HAS OFTEN SPOKEN MOST CLEARLY AND DIRECTLY. [DEXTER, Emma - Introduction. In Vitamin D: New Perspectives In Drawing. London: Phaidon, 2005, p. 9.]"
Ana Velez has participated in several solo and group exhibitions at the institutional level, but also in collective projects of urban art.

In her work she has established drawing as a directional tool, inquiring about its multiple material possibilities, which led her to develop her work also in the public space. There she made a series of pictorial interventions on damaged or already vanished buildings.

She addresses themes that go around the concept of identity, based on three ideas: place, memory and body, highlighting place as the container of memory and identity.

She is co-founder and active member of Vazarte, a multidisciplinary collective dedicated to creating reflective art projects, art spaces and urban art creations. In 2015, she also co-founded Atelier Contencioso with three other artists, with whom she shares a workspace and authorship of the artistic interventions at Rio Maravilha [Lisbon, Portugal] and the installations Mamba-de-Jameson, on the facade of Pensão Amor [Lisbon, Portugal], and Das Dez ao Meio-Dia [Óbidos, Portugal].

Her work is part of several institutional and private collections, both national and international.
