Impressive Oil Painting by Alyssa Monks

Born 1977 in Ridgewood, New Jersey, Alyssa Monks began oil painting as a child. Monks’ paintings explore the tension between abstraction and realism, using different filters to visually distort and disintegrate the body.



  • Alyssa Monks has a really interesting point of view. The way she centers makes her work very special.

    Beyond her impressively well mastered technique, her works suggest stories connected with he present time.

    Eventhough she works pretty well, the first intention she shows is not merely decorative.

  • Interesting stuff. Some of it looks very realistic.
