Introspective Drama Art Of Piero Manrique At Agora Gallery

Piero Manrique transforms the landscape of art with his large mixed media pieces. Using his fingertips and brushstrokes, he teases out a deep meaning from different varieties of paint, allowing them to interact to form something totally new. This is process art at its finest, and an expression of the evolving flow of nature. Colorful and ethereal, Manriques work is full of movement and introspective drama.
Piero Manrique was born in Peru and emigrated to the United States when he was a teenager. His art has always been his most natural form of expression.
