David de la Mano

David de la Mano (b-1975), graduated in Fine Arts before focussing on Public Art for his PhD at the University of Valencia. It’s naturally in the urban public space that he developed his trademark style, relying predominantly on his meticulous brushwork, his knack for large scale, almost systematic use of black and white, and his minimalist human silhouettes. Between shadow and light, playing with shapes, contours and contrasts, David de la Mano focuses on the importance of social ties, through the representation of human figures evolving in groups, often facing an obstacle or threat. He knows how to use the evocative power of silhouettes to stimulate the imagination of viewers.
