About Michael

Michael Manalo is a self-taught, digital mixed-media artist.

Using illustration and assemblage techniques he merges scenes from his mind’s eye with others captured on paper, in an attempt to create a habitat for his unconscious.

He describes himself as fascinated by life at large, from school fights to lone adults in parks and from flamboyant Mohawk hairstyles at concerts to private moments of inner turmoil.

Emotions flood into his mind as already fully-formed images, he says. The challenge for Malano is to convey these untempered feelings through universally known stories for greater comprehensibility.

His work has been exhibited in Poland and the Philippines.
