Monique Baqués Exhibition
The Brisbane Square Library is hosting Queensland based artist Monique Baqués, with her latest collection of oil paintings. Monique’s art brings a boost of positive energy to the end of 2020. In her own words, “this year has been a rollercoaster of emotions and challenge, so I decided it was time to create a joyful, vibrant and colourful series of paintings to uplift our spirit.”
Born in Argentina and based in Brisbane, visual artist Monique Baqués uses the language of colour to express deep feelings, represent her world and tell meaningful stories. Working with collage and oil on canvas, her work explores the relationship between colour, shape and space.
She earned her bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts in Buenos Aires and a postgraduate degree in Arts Management at the University of Chile. Monique has exhibited widely through Latin America, Europe, Asia and Australia and her works are owned by collectors around the world. She had the privilege to represent Argentina at the Art Expo Malaysia in 2010.
