Statement




Beatriz Monteavaro is a Cuban born artist whose work is influenced by the English Punk Rock music scene, science fiction and horror movies, and the fantasy environments at Disney Theme Parks. For several years her work has consisted of synchromystic, genre-mixing adventures where 80‘s rock stars and personalities such as Adam Ant, Gary Numan, Siouxsie Sioux and Malcolm Mclaren have been  portrayed as superheroes, arch-villains, revolutionaries, space travelers and Lovecraftian gods. In her recent work she has taken to re-appropriating her own collection of her paintings and drawings into shelters and ripped and reassembled collages, in an attempt to find different uses for art in a possible post-apocalyptic future.
