Born in Andalucia (Spain, 1971) Aurelio Monge is a versatile visual artist whose portfolio is inspired deeply by Baroque painters and other Old Masters of Romanticism, Academism, and Symbolism especially Caravaggio, Ribera, Velazquez, David, Gericauld and Bouquereau.
His work also focuses on the human figure impregnated by his enthusiasm for Greco-Roman culture and Classical sculpture particularly Phidias, Lysippus, Michelangelo, Cellini and Giambologna.
He likes to take care of the composition and framing. Taking advantage of natural light and grain textures at high sensibilities. Capturing the motion. Playing with the expressive possibilities of the models or the sculptural artworks.
