Monica Abbondanzia

Interior designer and painter, Monica has fed her passion for art since her early youth, more specifically once she received a watercolour paint palette as a present from her father. Since then, she has not stopped practising and expressing her emotions through her colour palette. Thanks to her numerous training courses at schools of art, Monica has acquired a certain virtuosity in her practice, which today allows her to be as well at ease in the realisation of her portraits in trompe l'œil as in the murals.

Gifted with a wide range of colourful shades, Monica’s characters emerge from her imagination through her reading and emotions of the moment. The artist’s approach, centred on human representation, is intended to reveal the thoughts and feelings that each person holds within themselves, in a common desire to better get to know each other. To do this, she works her portraits according to the principle of the unveiled/hidden to give a new way of perceiving some elements to better conceal others, and which is reflected on the canvas by a subtle composition made of a juxtaposition of parts that are sometimes flat and supported, sometimes just outlined, which she highlights by the choice of a narrowed perspective.

Settled in the Italian province of Lecco in Lombardy, from 2015 Monica took the plunge into the promotion of her work and that of other artists via the creation of a cultural and artistic association, ARTEe20.
