"Art allows my ego to express itself, it allows me to strike, to scratch something, to sting like a bee. My art is not a technique or aesthetic cult but communication. Some people succeed with words, others in the kitchen or sport, I try to do it with colors and shapes..."
MANA, is an Italian artist that invites his viewers on a journey into a surreal world where reality is suspended and fantasy flourishes in landscape and portrait oil paintings on canvas. Movement is evident in the expressive planes of MANA’s faces. Swirling clouds and fiery flora and fauna often sway rhythmically from side to side in effervescent environments. The pull of perspective leads to a place of prescient mystery often with the allure of sun-drenched horizons.
