Originally born and raised in New York City, Moncho1929 has lived and worked in London, Italy, Korea and -- now -- Los Angeles. Through all of these transitions, he has continued to be influenced by modern media and urban artwork.
Moncho1929 has shown in various galleries in New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Miami, London and, most recently, a solo show at the world renowned street art gallery LabArt and Julien’s Street Art Auction in Beverly Hills -- alongside such well known artists as Banksy and Mr. Brainwash.
His work is in many private collections across the world, including both the French Consulate in Los Angeles and Soho House. He has been commissioned by NBC’s “The Voice” for a large scale piece and The City of Glendale, California for public works. His murals are archived with the Los Angeles Mural Conservancy and the Google Street Art Project, and have been used by The University of Southern California and Oxygen’s “Street Art Throwdown.”
On an international scale, Moncho1929 exhibits his work and sells prints with Street Art and Graffiti in Paris.
Notably, Moncho1929’s works have drawn attention from the Department of Defense, Halliburton and The Naval Intelligence office — inspiring him to continue producing politically inspired and thought provoking art.
