Artist Bio Monika Arturi - Watercolorist
Monika Arturi is a self-taught watercolorist artist working in Chicago’s historic West Loop. Her artworks are transportive and evoke a sense of nostalgia from daily life and imagination. Inspired by her travels, the energy of local artists, as well as by giants like Salvador Dali, Claude Monet, and MC Escher, she thrives to put much of herself in all of her artworks and offer the viewer a sense of belonging. Monika paints with the Plein-Air Painters of Chicago and Urban Sketchers of Chicago as well as running her own sketching workshop.
