Javier Arrés x Thelonious Monk

A Brilliant Corner

Javier Arrés is a world-renowned motion / GIF artist and a 2019 London Art Biennale winner. Inspired by the sweeping views from his childhood home overlooking his hometown of Motril, Spain, Arrés is known for his manically detailed illustrations of fantastical scenery from cities, architecture, and machines. He further brings these worlds to life through what he calls “Visual Toys.” Through these Visual Toys, Arrés invites the viewer into a fantastical world, inspiring the viewer to simply play with their imaginations.

Thelonious Monk is one of the greatest jazz musicians of all time. Known for his unique improvisational style, many of his compositions have become jazz standards, including "Well, You Needn't," "Blue Monk" and "Round Midnight." Thelonious Monk has won multiple Grammys, including a Lifetime Achievement Award, is one of only five jazz musicians to have been featured on the cover of Time magazine, and is the second-most-recorded jazz composer after Duke Ellington.
