Contemporary Abstract Artist
Monic Reyes was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. From a young age, Monic always had an interest in the arts and enthusiastically ventured into projects that allowed her to explore her imagination. This thirst for creativity was later nurtured by her mother through her fashion brand, Malen Reyes Couture. Monic was made creative director and for several years co-designed alongside her mother. During that time she immersed herself in photography, interior design, and make-up artistry, and developed a keen eye for aesthetics. In 2015 she picked up a paintbrush and embarked on her journey of breathing life into the canvas The satisfaction she derives from the appreciation of her art propels her forward. Having featured her works in national galleries and international publications, she longs to showcase her pieces in galleries worldwide. The dream of her artwork being displayed and admired in art hubs globally pushes her to reach for greater heights. Monic is a visionary artist who left her mark on the art world for eight years. Her imaginative brilliance and freedom of expression are brought to life by bold, dynamic abstract forms, and rich, vibrant colors.
My intention as an artist is to infuse every canvas with a range of sentiments, beliefs, and concepts, articulating a true significance to my art. Focusing on contemporary abstraction, I favor the use of acrylic paint on canvas, experimenting with various techniques such as modeling paste and textiles to go beyond the traditional norms. I am fascinated by the combination of chromatic schemes and create a mixture of vivid or muted hues tailored to each art style I discover. As an active artist, I am continuously refining and developing my skills, constructing a distinct style while retaining an open mind to pursue new explorations. I believe that profoundly connecting to an audience is essential, providing a sense of emotion and understanding that encourages them to innovate, in turn, creating meaning for each individual. My art is meant to provoke thought, feeling, and engagement.
