“… so for now, until I decide to stop, I will try to free people’s minds, and allow them to withdraw from reality…” – Michael Vincent Manalo
At ARTprojectA, we showcase work in a variety of mediums, including paintings, prints, drawings, sculpture, photography, ceramics, jewelry, and decorative arts. Using our collective experience of over 50 years in the fine ART and design worlds, we identify artists with unique voices and whose work is creatively conceived and meticulously executed. Our team works closely with established, mid-career and selected emerging artists. We’re very excited to introduce you to one of the newest artists to join ARTprojectA.com, Michael Vincent Manalo from the Philippines.
Manalo’s work is haunting, yet mischievous in it’s beauty and theme. He is always true to his inspirations, everyday life and the surreal artist, Dali. He explains in his artist statement, “Vast images come to my mind each day as a result of the radical emotions that fill me in each heartbeat. I try to recreate it as soon as I could by combining photographs and techniques in illustration to recreate those concepts in mind. I forge these images and try to relate them to the popular tales of human drama.
I try to recreate these stories by illustrating my own interpretations of these emotions or sometimes literally creating the picture wherein the emotion can be distinguished.”
