FEELING COLOR - THE ARTIST BY THE SEA June 29, 2016 04:09 2 Comments

Monique Santander-Gruen is a Chilean-American artist and a freshly-minted resident of Solana Beach, Ca.

Born and raised in Santiago, Chile, Monique moved to NYC to pursue her calling in the arts. When you chat with her now, she would quietly confess that she is still a New Yorker at heart, but her newly formed bond with the Pacific Ocean and her new home fills her with a deep sense of awe, inspiration and gratitude.


While being a sophisticated traveller, comfortable in the shoes of a global trotter, Monique uses her artistic path to break free herself from defined realities. Liberated, she embarks on a journey into the mysteries of the inner worlds, daring us to come along.

Her abstract landscapes are a spontaneous celebration of color, form and movement. In a complex attempt to unify and disentangle order and chaos, her released passion roams freely and deliberately through the peaks and valleys of a rhythmic expression. Unrestricted emotions give a fluid and distinct voice to a palette, tapped into euphoric energy of a spiraling trance.

How can we resist such invitation? Courageously, we take a plunge!
