Manuel was born in 1976 in Milan, where he attended the Brera Academy of Fine Arts. In his artistic practice he moves between different fields including painting, photography and collage to create installations in which he translates and tells “the time”.
His works are made of several materic layers, always joined chasing the same scientific order, like following a ritual, yet without being mechanical.
Time is the main character of his works: time like a necessary measure to create the work itself. The short-lived time of the photographic instant, the digitally-processed shot, therefore printed with the absence of white on a previously prepared canvas who becomes a collective memory. Besides “Time” as ideal and universal category, which rules life, beats the rithm and changes things and people.
