An Expressionist painter, he was primarily self-taught, without formal schooling. He was influenced by Hohenleitter, and especially by Ressendi, who was also a friend, giving him advice about his painting.
Monedero was born at Seville in 1925, in the well-known “Alameda de Hércules”. His first exhibition was held in 1961 at the Dickson Gallery (Washington). All along the 60s he had several exhibitions in the US, from Washington to Philadelphia, Baltimore, New York, Princeton, and California. He also showed his works in Montreal … on all the occasions he was always sponsored by well-known galleries.
His first Spanish exhibition was in 1965 at the Florencia Gallery in Seville. After that, he had four exhibitions in Madrid, two in the Heller Gallery and another two at the Cano Gallery between 1973 and 1979. In the 90s he moved to a small village named “Carboneras” located in the heart of the National Park of Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche (Huelva, South Spain), where he found inspiration to create his best masterpieces. In March 1993, Seville paid tribute to his career through an Anthological Exhibition which was a great success among critics and the public. He died in December 6, 2002.
