Guillermo Monroy is a Mexican artist who has lived in Britain for over twenty years.

Drawing from his cultural background, Monroy works as a musician and sculptor re-fashioning found musical instruments into eloquent pieces that reference music, temporality and silence. Trained at Berkshire Community College, MA, USA and San Carlos Academy of Art, Mexico City Monroy has exhibited internationally since 1984.

Recent exhibitions include Tiempo y Silencio at the Eagle Gallery, London in 2010 and in 2007 his monumental sculptural crucifix The Sleeper was acquired for St James The Less Church in Pimlico.

Monroy’s solo exhibition Fugue celebrates a major commission

by Blackheath Conservatoire as part of their new programme

to forge links between the visual arts and music departments

within the institution.

Fugue is a permanent sculptural reception desk that incorporates

violins, cellos, piano keys and wind instruments topped

with musical scores and will be shown alongside individual

two and three dimensional works around the building.
