Monica Popham

Monica Popham is a Fine Art graduate who is currently based in Gibraltar. Monica’s main body of work focuses on the tangible quality of sunlight, and how it interacts with the Mediterranean architecture in Gibraltar and other surrounding areas.

She captures the synergy between sunlight and buildings through photography and paint and plays with the vibrancy and scale of the pieces, varying from small, intimate tiles to larger paintings.

The intimacy of her paintings invites the viewer to come closer and appreciate the emotional quality of something as simple as sunlight reflecting off a window. The tiles come together to form one large painting whilst simultaneously working as individual pieces which engulf the room in warm, golden light.


Her  'Airing it out' tile painting was the recipient of the Ministry of Culture Award in the  'Our Gibraltar' 2022 Art Competition.

September 2022      saw Monica exhibit at the Bermondsey Project Space Gallery, London in a group exhibition organised by The Gibraltar Cultural Services.
