Beatriz Monteavaro
Cuban born artist Beatriz Monteavaro's work is influenced by British new wave music, science fiction, horror movies, and Disney World. Her most recent series creates her own narrative which follows Adam Ant of the 80's band Adam and the Ants, along with Gary Numan, Bela Lugosi, Siouxsie Sioux and Picasso. From sculpture to obsessive cross-hatched drawings, to epic scale storyboards, Monteavaro imbues her legendary heroes with the expressions of people we know and see everyday. Monteavaro has a BFA from Tyler School of Art of Temple University. Her work has been internationally exhibited at such places as Annina Nosei Gallery in New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami; Tent in Rotterdam, Holland, Galerie Edward Mitterrand in Geneva, Switzerland; Fredric Snitzer Gallery in Miami, FL; Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin, Paris, France; Centro Cultural Español in Miami, FL; NFA Space in Chicago, IL; and The National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington D.C, among others. She has had solo exhibitions at Fredric Snitzer Gallery and The Gulf Coast Museum of Art in Largo, FL. Her work has been reviewed and featured in Flash Art, ArtUS and Art Papers. Monteavaro lives and works in Miami.
