Eduardo Monteagudo

About

Eduardo has had the privilege of an early education and upbringing into the practice of the arts coming from both parents being notorious artists. He had the chance to put his imagination and creativity to use with all the knowledge and experiences coming from his environment, providing many opportunities to explore and widen his own artistic universe.

He attended the Facultad de Bellas Artes de Cuenca, in Spain.

Led by his innate curiosity and independent personality he moved to Paris in 1995 where he experienced, first hand, the grand artistic achievements of Europe in every corner of this capital of the arts. His extended and continuous pacing through some of the most important museums opened his sights and widened his drive to create. He worked alongside many artists in diverse disciplines and earned the support of the City of Paris for several projects. He was also awarded recognition on his innovating use of traditional techniques in oil and watercolor painting.

After living in Barcelona for some time he moved to Cincinnati where he developed his career in the US while keeping venues and representation back in Spain and France. He has permanent representation in Canada and in the US at Miller Gallery from Cincinnati (OH).

His work makes part of private collections and has been featured in art galleries in Toronto, Seattle, Chicago, San Francisco, Houston, Madrid, Barcelona, Paris, London and Munich.

He has recently closed projects with higher-scale hotels like Hilton and Sheraton.

Three of his pieces embellish the all new Cincinnatian Hilton Hotel in downtown Cincinnati. He is also taking part in important corporate and public art projects.

He currently lives and works in northern Spain.

“My work as an artist consists much more in questioning reality as we experience it than in venturing an interpretation of it. I consider painting an essential way to attenuate the human anxiety to assimilate into his own reality and environment, to transform the perpetual fight of man against its nature into a state of deep understanding and empathy aiming to shed light onto the enigmatic and exceptional source of his conscience.”
