The marvel is always available and surround us at any time, everywhere. Salvatore Manzi tries to make it visible to everyone by distilling the compositional methods that he uses each time in the construction of his artworks. In exhibition events, in the intimacy of his history, on the spiritual path he travels, he tends to seek the purest balance, simplest, more useful to understand and describe the dynamics of nature. He aims to follow the relationship that he lives with divinity, to convey the astonishment for the deepest mysteries, trying to solve, for himself and others, issues that have always accompanied us and probably will never leave us.Piero Chiariello, curator of Wallpapers for your phone #4
Salvatore Manzi was born in 1975 in Naples, where he lives and works. Involved from the beginning to the iniquity of the art system and market, he participated in and organized various collective actions to develop processes of artistic depersonalization. He then turned to a more extensive research and numerous references to social distress appeared in his works. Since 2006, following his conversion to Protestantism, his art research has thickened with spiritual content.
