Artist Highlight





Cuban-born MANO came to the United States as part of Operation Pedro Pan* at the age of twelve, with his older brother. For the next five years he lived in Westfield, New Jersey with family friends until he was reunited with his parents.

Although MANO graduated as an electrical engineer and successfully practiced is profession for more than twenty years, he always felt the need to express himself artistically and beyond the design concepts of engineering.  MANO has now traded components and electronics for a new career in art.

He is a self-taught artist who has developed a unique expressionist-style dominated by faces and the female form.  Usually his faces are merely a point of departure for MANO to explore the interplay of contrasting colors on a myriad of surfaces. When asked what inspires him, MANO says "Everything...people, music, nature all lead me on journey's through the imagination where images converge and forms and color captivate me. Observation of the mind's creation allows me to assimilate and recreate, in my own style, the shades of color and images of form".
