Piero Manrique is a designer, artist, sculptor and architect. His work has been exhibited in galleries in the U.S. and Europe. He has won numerous awards and has collaborated on the design of spaces for notable individuals. In addition to his work as a fine artist, Manrique also designs commercial and residential spaces, mixed-media electronic graphics art and sculptures.
Manrique calls upon his architectural design sensibilities in creating his art. Although grounded by a solid sense of composition, all of his work exhibits the free stream of his imagination. He uses fantastical flights of color to surround and overlay concrete images of individuals, landscapes and animals. His distinctive personal vision of surrealist dreamscapes invites the viewer to appreciate the splendor of the human body in juxtaposition to imagined technology and otherworldly forces.
