Martina Manalo


Self-taught contemporary mixed media artist, and photographer with works inspired by the dreams of the clouds, nostalgic, melancholic memories and teenage angst.

Manalo’s abstract works explore the release of nervous tension from a universal perspective; from subjective and objective viewpoints.

"I see beauty in the things that are minimal but avant-garde, deep but subtle, the nostalgic, melancholic, but full of angst--contradicting but by bits and pieces they are different, and will always be mysterious. That I think is what make things beautiful."
