Gogo Ilustra participated in Domestic Systemic Pandemic with illustrations on topics relating to womens rights and activism. She also did an artist talk online with representatives from each collaborating organisation.
Graphic designer and feminist activist María Fernanda Aguila Ortiz was born 1996 in Veracruz, Mexico.
As a child she drew so as to not disturb her mother, and at 15
years old it was precisely because of her that she discovered design. This is how after several unexpected events she was accepted at the Instituto de Estudios Superiores en Arquitectura y Diseño Grafico where little by little she discovered alter-egos and Gogo was born.
Her work has been exhibited in Bogotá, Colombia at the Salon Ilustración Imagen Palabra 7, has a Silver Mention in the Premio a! Design in the Estudiante en Cartel category, in addition to being a finalist in the student category in Illustration.
She has exhibited at Bienal Internacional de Mexico in its 14th call, in the collection "A darle que es mole de olla'' and “A la hora del te”. She has also been part of the exhibition “A la Muerte con una Sonrisa” at the Museo Mexicano del Diseño (MUMEDI), in the Mexican Fanzine "Embriegas Luna En Bragas” and has illustrated for the Mexico City’s movement No Estamos Todas.
She recently collaborated in the “Hasta Hoy” campaign, which aimed to raise awareness for violence against women as featured in several buses in the State of Puebla in February of this year. She is a Rebel daughter, a woman who looks younger than her age, full of contractures and addicted to sketchbooks. She currently works for the independent media Lado B as illustrator and monera amateur.
