Monica Lopez De Victoria (b. 1980, Gainesville, FL, USA) is a multi-disciplinary artist and performer in Artistic Synchronized Swimming. For the past 20 years Monica has woven these two art forms together.

Kvaran, the Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art, and PERFORMA in NYC by Roselee Goldberg. Her work has been seen and written about in L’Officiel magazine, The Guardian, STEP Inside Design, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Vogue Italia, and on the cover of ARTnews magazine.
Monica’s artwork also is a part of permanent collections of the Van Abbe Museum in the Netherlands and the Perez Art Museum Miami as well as other public and private collections. Monica has participated in residencies in Canada, New Zealand, Mexico, and the USA and has recently been supported by the Bauhaus Foundation for residency projects in Germany and South Korea.
