Dimensional reduction of the self-dual Yang-Mills equation in 2 + 2 dimensions produces an integrable Yang-Mills-Higgs-Bogomolnyi equation in 2 + 1 dimensions. For the SU(1, 1) gauge group, a t'Hooft-like ansatz is used to construct a monopole-like solution and an N-soliton-type solution, which describes both the static deformed monopoles and the exotic monopole dynamics including a transmutation. How the monopole solution results from the twistor formalism is shown. Multimonopole solutions are commented on.
