About Monique Baques
Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1972 , I studied art since I was 12 years old. Over the past 25 years of my career as an artist, I have lived in Argentina, Chile, France, Holland, Malaysia and Australia. This variety of cultures and environments is reflected in my creations. All my paintings can be grouped into series which are thematically linked. Each series aims at exploring insistent ideas or feelings inspired by my own life experiences.
In 1994 I obtained a degree from the National School of Fine Arts of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Later on I attained a postgraduate degree at the University of Chile specializing in Visual Arts.
In addition to my formal education, I have also learned to work with alternative media such as fashion accessory design, batik, stone sculpture and jewellery.
I have exhibited my work in Australia,Malaysia, The Netherlands, France, Chile, and Argentina since 1990.
