Monica Sarandrea


Monica Sarandrea

 Monica Sarandrea was born in Rome. Since her childhood she shows good skills in drawing and painting, and a special interest in landscapes. Following her passion for literature she graduates from the University of Rome “La Sapienza” with a MA in Foreign Languages and Literatures.
After many trips to Paris, from 2005 to 2010 she attends the art courses at La Porta Blu Art School where she is tutored by artist Alberto Parres. She develops her painting skills working on colour perception and depth of field, gradually moving from figurative art to abstraction. At the same time she studies engraving with artist Roberto Pace and from 2011 she starts working on sculpture focusing on materials such as clay and marble. From 2011 to 2013 she attends marble workshops in Thassos (Greece). The source of her work is literature, particularly French poetry and eastern philosophy.
Her works are deeply related to nature and its spiritual dimension.
Monica Sarandrea lives and works in Rome.
