Monmon Magana Member Since March 2009 Artist Statement I have studied fine art for 10 years and graphic design for 5 and been painting for 15 years. I studied fine art from junior high school. I then attended a High School for the performing arts and arts in New York City; I was an art major there. I had a wonderful learning experience that led me to my next destination. I then majored in Graphic Design at a New York City College for 4 years. I was on the Deans Honor list for 4 semesters. I have since, worked as a Graphic Design Assistant at a clothing company in NYC, then Graphic Designer presently. I paint and design my own works on my leisure time. I truly love to create and possibly move people through my work. Art allows me to express and share my emotions and thoughts. I believe that we all go through life wanting to be known for who we really are in side. Why do we paint? For ourselves...or for someone else? Or for everyone, then why? Simply put, people want to be known for who they are. I want to be known for who I truly am inside. So, I share my work with you.
