aileen-004

Artist and Make-Up extraordinaire Aileen Quintana has developed a new vision that
merges art, make-up, and fashion via an interactive art installation.
Quintana’s fashion interactive performance installations allow guests to
be transformed aesthetically and transported to an alternate version of
reality. A concept that Quintana first tested at III Points
2013 with tremendous success.She has also been commissioned for other
similar fashion/ makeup/ art installations around Miami as a result of her
success with the III Points team, creating a memorable experience for
everyone …

OPEN ART HOUSE
An artist’s work is a direct interpretation of Aileen world in her perspective, working as an escape from the confines of reality. Over time and through experience, her home has become a carefully curated compilation of her work, a physical product of how I view the world.
In a one-of-kind experience that allows guests to interact with and relate to the art, relax, and truly submerge themselves within the moment they are living in. dream-like interactive installation that utilizes every room differently. It is a psychedelic portal that defies the boundaries and standards of a typical art exhibition and allows guests to become lost deep in her world within.
