Monos, Sándor




The Hungarian sculptor Sándor Monos has been living in Canada since 1977. He studied at the Mohawk College and at the Valley School of Art. In 1984, he started to be interested in drawing, illustrations and carricatures. In the early 90s he started his works with cast-bronze sculptures based on wax forms.
His works are characterised by movemement. The figures get into motion through the generous, agile dynamic along the flexible contours and without any unnecessary details. The sculptures demand to be view from all sides, as they have no clear face plan. From every perspective the observer is shown a new interesting view, while his view follows the wave-like, pliant lines along the rhythm of the figure. In stark contrast to the hard material of the bronze and physical laws, the figures seem to be floating in the air. The indiviudal figures rest on a single point, which is not easy to find. Thus, the sculptures avoid to transform their movements and gestures into a forced pose.
Since 1995, the artist’s artwork could be seen at exhibitions in Canada and the United States. In 1997 his first exhibition in his home country was organised. His works are continuesly shown in the Koller Gallery. He had single exhibitions in Veszprém and in Budapest, in the Millenáris park.
