Born in Andalucía, Spain, 1971, Monge's portfolio is deeply inspired by Baroque painters, especially Caravaggio, Velazquez or Ribera, and by his enthusiasm for Greek-Roman culture and Classical sculpture from Phidias to Michelangelo, Cellini or Giambologna.

His work also focuses on the human figure and explores his own vision of body and soul, light and darkness through the chiaroscuro and futurist photo-dynamism after his near-death experience in 2010.
“Don't be afraid of the dark, be afraid of what the light could reveal.”
