A generous painter and outstanding draughtsman
Born on November 20, 1957 in Buenos Aires, Fabian Cerredo graduated from the Manuel-Belgrado National School of Fine Arts. He then worked with the sculptor Antonio Pujia and in the studio of the painter Antonio Oliva, before moving to Paris in 1980. He then joined Michel Gemignani's studio at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, and graduated in 1985.
Monfleur : His work is characterized by direct carving on a hard stone often monumental5. This technique implies a definitive gesture where the artist subtracts from the material1. His artistic vocabulary is figurative6. The human being is at the center of his work with a universal dimension7,8. For Olivier Cena ofTélérama9:
"When Denis Monfleur carves his heads and characters out of basalt, he expresses the vision he has of man. He speaks of contradictions, violence and poetry, egoism and the occasional burst of generosity, avowed or condemnable passions - all that is rendered by the nuances of the stone, the shadows and the lights, the crevices and the peaks, the polished and the rough, the elegance of the curves and the tension of the edges".
