The Dolls of Mariana Monteagudo on Juxtapoz Magazine
July, 2019 - A group of doll sculptures by Latin American artist Mariana Monteagudo was recently featured on the prestigious art magazine Juxtapoz.
“I am extremely honored to see my work featured on Juxtapoz,” said Monteagudo. “For years I’ve followed the magazine, finding inspiration for my work and learning from the many great artists it has presented.”
The article briefly describes her signature artwork showcasing 16 sculptures from the Uncanny and Post Apocalyptics series, previously exhibited at Art Miami 2018.
Describing her creative process, the magazine writes “Monteagudo is like a waste-picker, she walks around neighborhoods to salvage gems from people's bulk trashes, rescuing textiles or baseball balls, plastic bottles of orange juice or an old unkempt teddy bear.”
Juxtapoz was founded in 1994 by a group of San Francisco artists and art collectors to showcase urban alternative and underground contemporary art. Today, it is one of the most popular art magazines in the world.
