Mónica Figueroa

Born in 1991 in Mexico City.

She lives in Oaxaca and works between Oaxaca and Mexico City.

She has a bachelor in Visual Arts from the Arts and Design Faculty of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México. She specialized in Painting, Drawing and Illustration. Her work has been exhibited in group and solo shows in Mexico, Romania and Slovenia. 

She considers her paintings and drawings as essays that attempt to answer questions and unsolved concerns as the sense of life, human relationships, fear of death or the unknown, uncertainty and anxiety. 

Other times she sees them as affirmations strong enough to build new realities, especially some that contribute to enrich and complex the ways in which women and their universes are portrayed.
