Italian artist Elena Monzo was the highlight of The CAMP Gallery – The Contemporary Art Modern Project, by Melanie Prapopoulos, on display at SCOPE: one of the most prestigious satellite fairs during Miami Art Week. Miami Art Week is America’s most ambitious art week during which people, for the love of art, gather on time every year in early December.  Prapopoulos, who has a flair for Italian artists and had presented, in 2019, the artist Stefano Ogliari Badessi, said about Monzo, “She is a truly amazing artist, who manages to combine with a certain sensitivity, never obvious, the opposites of the soul, letting them coexist in harmony.” 


Elena Monzo is a provocative figurative artist whose duality is always in the balance and tense in the continuous search for harmony of opposites between being and appearing, Yin and Yang, black and white, male and female. The favorite subjects with which she expresses her creativity concern the feminine universe: “I find that the woman, because of its own nature more complex than the male, is a more interesting being to study and analyze,” said the artist.
