  • About the Artist

Born in Orzinuovi (Brescia) in 1981. After the degree in Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Brera (Milan), she entirely focused her work on the artistic creation and research on the feminine figure. In 2015 she was selected for the Swatch Art Peace Hotel, a prestigious artist residence in the heart of Shanghai for 6 months. In 2013 the artist’s works were shown during ArteFiera Bologna, and she was awarded with the Camera di Commercio prize in the city of Mantua during the contest Mantegnacercasi. The same year marks for the artist the meeting point with two different cultures -Far Eastern and Arabic- as she stayed in two artist residences, in Tamashima/Japan and Beirut/Lebanon, in the second half of the year. Among Monzo’s personal exhibits: Nidi di Nodi di Bu (2008, in the Mantua branch of the Galleria Bonelli) and Inside (2007, in the Los Angeles branch). In 2012 the artist took part in the project Twin Room in Havana (Cuba), inside the Festival de Arte Jovem, and showed her works in solo shows at the Galleria Traghetto in Venice and the Galleria Colossi in Brescia. Her works were also exhibited in 2010 at the Contemporaryart show (Milan, Superstudiopiù) and in 2011 in the Cannaviello art studio (Milan).
