He has exhibited his works in various countries, including the United States, Germany, Mexico, France, and Ecuador, among others. He is a Visiting Associate Professor[1] at the Estonian Academy of Art and a Senior Artist[2] at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna in the Energy Design Department of the Architecture Institute.

Early life and education[edit]

Galo Moncayo is an architect, sculptor and installation artist. He was born in Guayaquil, Ecuador, and spent his formative years in both Ecuador and the United States. Moncayo's education played an important role in shaping his artistic and architectural vision. Moncayo holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in sculpture from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Maryland. His background in sculpture has been a strong influence on his work in architecture and academia. His interest in three-dimensional space, texture, and the relationship between form and function are all evident in his architectural installation. Moncayo went on to earn a Master of Fine Arts in sculpture from Virginia Commonwealth University[3]. During his time there, he explored interactive, kninetic works under Elizabeth King. This multidisciplinary approach to sculpture has helped Moncayo find an unique perspective. Moncayo holds a Magister in Architecture from the master class of Zaha Hadid at the University of Applied Arts Vienna[4]

Moncayo's education in fine arts, particularly sculpture and expanded media, has given him a unique perspective combining interactivity, design and into works of art that can be called architectural, or architecture that can be called sculptural. His designs are characterised by their attention to detail, use of unconventional materials, and sculptural quality. Moncayo's works are celebrated for their ability to create spaces that engage the senses and evoke emotions. His interdisciplinary background has allowed him to approach architecture from a fresh perspective, and his designs continue to push the boundaries of what is possible in the field.


He was an assistant professor of sculpture at Indiana University, Bloomington, where he ran the graduate and undergraduate sculpture programs. He has been invited as a visiting artist/ lecturer at Carnegie Mellon University, The George Washington University, among other universities in North America and in Germany.

Moncayo has also held various academic positions such as a university lecturer at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and an assistant professor at the Institute for Experimental Architecture at the University of Innsbruck. He has taught various courses related to sculpture, art and critical theory, and computer-controlled robotics.

Moncayo has exhibited his works in various solo and group exhibitions. Some of his recent exhibitions include Vibrant 02: Outside In at Bratislava Design Week in Slovakia, Vibrant 01: Versatility at Vienna Design Week in Austria, and Understanding Arts Based Research Exhibition at UCLA in Los Angeles, California, USA.
