About the event
A graduate of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Seville, the artist Manolo MESA builds in the studio or in the public space, an artistic action without limit, always pushing his field of investigation further.
From his first creations in 2010 to his study of ceramics today, the works of the Andalusian artist are an invitation to aesthetic contemplation but also to questioning the links between past and future, tradition and innovation, abandonment and resistance.
Manolo MESA's painting highlights the need to value tradition and appropriate its codes in order to transform them into contemporary expression, participating in the evolution of consciousness and collective culture.
The strength of resistance of cultural particularities in contemporary standardization and respect for know-how animate his passion. He observes and seeks to understand particular contexts in order to convey, in painting, unique and timeless sensations.
“In my work I try to use images that construct the allegory of a spiritual world that I need to feel close to. I like to talk about people, to connect men to nature and to objects, to work on the gaze, time, sequence, the duality of things.”
All subjects, as raw material for a philosophy of resistance. »
