Mónica Batard was born in Cabaiguán, Sancti Spiritus province in 1979. She always wanted to be an artist and knew she would be one since she began studying at the now defunct Oscar Fernandez Morera academy of fine arts, after ruling out dance, music theory and theater in her artistic training. From her early years as a student, she was drawn to abstraction, although she has also performed specific feminist interventions in her career, advocating for art made by women. In her constant quest for self-improvement, she completed her studies at the Jose Marti University, also in Sancti Spiritus province. She has delved into digital animation, hand-drawing each frame with an expressionist and deeply personal touch, and has exhibited her short films, which lie between video art and film creation, at the "Muestra Joven" ICAIC and the Camagüey International Video Art Festival. She was part of the collective exhibition "Once Libres" at the University of Havana, exhibited at the Havana Biennial in 2015, and in 2019 participated in collective projects and exhibited in alternative spaces such as Café Altamira in Cuba.
