Works by Alejandro Monge

As a starting point, Alejandro Monge presents a reflection on destruction as a form of creation. Classical busts are invaded and assaulted by contemporary elements, baroque still lives are painted in flames and everyday objects are portrayed damaged and juxtaposed in such a way as to comment on current affairs.

The artist presents his particular language fearlessly: hyper realism with street art influences or baroque classics reinterpreted with a conceptual art approach make his original and irreverent works difficult to label. Monge uses a variety of techniques and styles to give rise to a careful and detailed body of work where not everything is what it seems. Alabaster, lacquered steel, porcelain and resins are employed homogeneously, leading to technically and aesthetically complex pieces.

One of his most important works to date is the burned bills series in paper or steel, hand-painted and reaching hyper realist perfection, reflecting on the excesses of our society. Monge studied Fine Arts, sculpture and design at Escuela de Artes de Zaragoza. He has exhibited widely across Spain and overseas.
