Monica Bengoa (1969, Santiago, Chile) is a Chilean visual artist, whose artistic research has established a working process, around the problem of the material expansion of the everyday life, using transference strategies of photographical images to great murals, by manual means. In this manner, she has established material interchange bridges with other media and supports, employing formal strategies coming from drawing and painting, including the use of objects.
