Monique Lecouna - Argentina - I´m a visual artist. I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I studied at the National University of Fine Arts and did my postgraduate studies in Painting and Visual Arts.
Nowadays, jewelry is my way of expressing, the language that I choose. In addition to beautifying, a jewel has the power of communication, of transmitting a message. And the body is the support of it.
I always start my pieces from objects that I unexpectedly find, giving them a new life. This objects help me to tell a story. My works are a reflection of the apparently insignificant, what is imperfect.
