Manny Valenzuela artist profile

Manny Valenzuela artist photoMany of my paintings are metaphors of personal relationships that convey a message using western influences. Everyone has something to say I just prefer to communicate with metal or paint.” ~Manny Valenzuela

Manny is a dynamic contemporary Artist. His principal works are acrylic on canvas paintings, cast bronze and welded steel sculpture. His sculptures and paintings are inspired by his colorful heritage.

 “I love using my artwork to express that special bond between a parent and his/her kids. Bright colors and textures are mixed in a contemporary fashion creating a unique interpretation of the world around us. The combination of subject and technique brings character and flair to a room while still embracing a deeper meaning.”

“I mainly work with western figures because of the poetic lifestyle they lead. It appears simple yet contains a complexity that goes beyond what seems obvious. I love creating paintings that stir emotion. It’s a great feeling to know you’ve touched someone’s heart or put a smile on their face. My style is minimalistic because of its ability to best convey the message with very little distraction. Some of the designs are derived from childhood memories and others represent my relationship with my own kids.”

Pre-historic art, western icons, and personal life experiences influence the designs for his sculpture. A contemporary touch coupled with a southwestern flavor is evident in his artwork. His contemporary abstract pieces consist of visual metaphors, symbolizing both personal and global representations.
