Swoon (Juxtapoz cover #73). Oh, you've seen her: from New York's P.S. 1 and Deitch Projects to Hui No'eau on Maui and Berlin's gritty street corners. Notorious for constructing a giant floating raft and sailing it down river (twice!), she is neither a pirate nor a street artist.

She’s been described by Swoon as a “rising star,” even as “a natural.” San Francisco Bay Area based Monica Canilao (Juxtapoz #93) creates layered, deep, and intellectually challenging pieces. One of the hardest working artists around, Monica spends her days experimenting with new mediums, planning work dates (“because it brings me a lot of joy to be working around others and skill sharing whenever possible”), and taking the craft of handmade artistry to new levels. Learn more about this insatiable artist and why she claims “eating sandwiches and inventing rap” was the best things she’s done to breakthrough as an artist.
