Sometimes, an artist is more than just a painter or sculptor. Sometimes, an artist is a creator of miracles. Often, these miracles are abstract and elusive, but they can also be quite tangible. Artworks created by such artists are, in many ways, inspired by real-life patterns and people, which makes them especially captivating and astonishing. In this blog post, we are excited to introduce the Chilean artist Monroe whose abstract paintings are true miracles consisting of the liveliest energy that is meticulously masked under the artist’s individual approach to creating art.
