Jonathan Monk at CAC Malaga on Art Daily

“’I have always thought that art revolves around ideas and the idea of an original and a copy are clearly two very different things’, explains Jonathan Monk (born Leicester, UK, 1969). In COLOURS, SHAPES, WORDS (pink, blue, square, circle, etc.) this British artist explores and experiments with the concept of the appropriation and reinterpretation of works by iconic artists of the 1960s and 1970s, while adding to them the mark of his own particular experience.”
