Unique Sculptural collage(s) with previously used materials from earlier works found in the studio transformed into wall arrangements. While rearranging her personal life, Monika began an intimate process of relating to her needs. This experience emerged from a specific relationship to her emotional state and how it allowed me to discover new perspectives by experimenting and integrating all parts, all languages, all experiences into one.
To Monika Bravo, the plurality of forms, the amalgam of experience that overload our senses is the ultimate form of art since it is through the hyper-sensorial that art runs across experiences and subjectivities; the multiplicity of shapes and colors and their relation not only to our mind, but to our body is expressed through these multi-modal pieces.
Sculptural collage with previously discarded leftover materials from the studio. Transformative wall arrangements. Freedom of association: elements, assimilation
MONIKA BRAVO I am a multi-disciplinary artist born in Bogotá, Colombia. I studied fashion design in Rome & Paris and photography in London and NYC. I moved to Miami Beach, in 2020. I embody my own perspective and no longer seek “truth”; my vision is a synthesis of all disciplines, guiding me to manifest a reality that matches my desire to evolve. I create mesmerizing environments for public spaces, intimate interpersonal interactions through astrological readings, and meaningful spaces for individual and communal development through talks and workshops. I enjoy directing and producing diverse projects, from complex multi-media installations and public art commissions to artists’ books, textile design, and community workshops – thus, I see no boundaries between the applied and fine arts. I thrive in situations where I am working with limitations and constraints, creating opportunities for innovative projects that serve communities for years to come. I enjoy challenging myself with new technologies and materials, discovering new ways of manifesting my ideas to fit the needs of the location.
