Steven Antonio J Manes (1993, BE) Ghent based Italian visual artist, abstract sculptures and drawings

“I always feel an urge to create, to translate my view on the world and feelings into abstract images to tell the story of who I am/what I feel.
It’s important to me to be honest with yourself and true to who you are and how you feel inside while co-existing in this perishable world.

Feelings in which people can recognise themself, that once and a while everyone has like sadness, frustration or feeling lost.

Also my Italian roots have a profound influence on my work. This is the language of my heart and still the best way for me to express myself purely.

Only in art I can be 100% purely myself, without thinking too much or compromise to someone or something. This is my art and this is me.”
