Art Madrid'24 – Mono Cieza

Mono Cieza

Argentina, 1969

Mono Cieza was Born in Argentina. He studied composition at the Faculty of Fine Arts of La Plata (Argentina), released music for films. He continued to study cinema in Barcelona, and started to produce slow motion movies, and at the same time he started to develop diverse artistic projects, such as collages, drawings and installations which later drove him into the use of volume. Now Mono Cieza dedicates his work almost exclusively to the world of sculptures. Transcendence and self-surpassing, seem to be main features in his work. Intrigued by the limited human physicality: Mono Cieza goes always beyond them, capturing popsurrealist universes, in which mystical animals, hybrid bodies, supernatural humans are reminiscent of old traditions and spiritual believings. Within the last years, Mono Cieza’s work has been recognized and presented in several international exhibitions. Therefore, the artist’s contribution to the constantly growing movement of Contemporary Surrealism has been noted especially because of his peculiar approach to sculpture.
