Gheller Monica - sculptor

Gheller Monica


Born in Carate Brianza (MB) in September 1966, and currently Iives in Seregno (MB), Northern Italy.

Her artistic activity began around twenty years ago when she started attending the "Impronte Cultural Association" of Nova Milanese where she learned the classical and modern techniques of painting on porcelain (third fire), and techniques of decoration with enamels (great fire).

She also discovered in this laboratory for the first time the fascination of the clay material, a magical encounter that later on developed into a great passion.
The spark was the knowledge of the Raku Ceramic Art, that she acquired in the ceramist Paola Gambero's laboratory in Monza, which later became her main form of expression.
Following this, she participated in various competitions and received mentions of honour and prizes (the latest one being the third prize of the "SCULPTORS AT PALAZZO in 2019.


This competition was organised at the Palazzo Borromeo of Cesano Maderno), she also participated in group exhibitions (some of the most relevant being SpoletoArte in 2019, and Biennale Milano in 2019 and 2021), and then some personal exhibitions (Forme d'argilla in 2015 at the Enzo Mariani Gallery in Seregno (MB), and Riflessioni d'argilla at the San Giuseppe cultural circle in Seregno (MB) in 2022), and in art fairs (PAT. Pavia in 2017 and 2018, and ArtePadova in 2019).

Her works are in permanent exhibition at the Villa Vertua Masolo- Permanent Collection of the Arts of Fire in Nova Milanese (MB), and at the Sartori House Museum in Castel D'Arlo (MN).
Many of her most recent works are reviewed and archived in the Encyclopedia of Italian Contemporary Art - ADTEDITORI and OFFICINE CULTURALI ROMANE
