Biography / DAVID DE LA MANO

David de la Mano is a Spanish contemporary artist best known for his stunning murals often depicting silhouettes, trees and other monochromatic imagery. de la Mano is a versatile artist who excels from drawing to sculpture. The artist experiments with different techniques among which acrylics, watercolours, ink and collage. His works are featured in the URBAN NATION 2018 exhibition, ‘UN-DERSTAND The Power of Art as a Social Architect’.

With education in the form of a degree in Fine Art from the University of Salamanca and PhD studies in Public Art from the University of Valencia, this further characterised and refined his style. His large-scale, black and white pieces provoke reactions among the viewers and encourage their emotions and ideas through a minimalist aesthetic.

David observes others and their social or anti-social behaviour, exploring every corner of social behaviour in his practice, using silhouettes of men, women, or the masses as narrative metaphors. Through these figures, he gives poetic visions of the human condition in society and the ways human perceive the world
