Michael Vincent Manalo: " In Search of New Identity "

Born on 1986 in the Philippines, Michael Vincent Manalo is a self-taught mixed media artist, a photographer and a musician. The themes that are mostly seen on his work revolve around surrealism, pseudo-realism, nostalgic sentiments, and human emotion.

Michael Vincent Manalo is one of the primary contributors for advanced photo-manipulation tutorials for Photoshop Tutorials, and has created various artworks as album covers for international bands/musicians, and also as book covers for numerous publishing companies.

Manalo's works were featured in solo and group exhibitions at such institutions as the American University Museum in Washington D.C., the Art Dimensions Gallery in Missouri, the Art Museum of Chianciano Terme in Italy.

" Creating my artworks though my chosen medium was brought about my frustration in the traditional process of painting, which as a result has given me even more possibilities to recreate the visceral levels contained within the vast assemblage of my spirit."
~~ Michael Vincent Manalo
