Steven Antonio Manes. 1993. Belgium based Italian visual artist
Abstract-expressionistic drawings and arte-povera inspired sculptures. Steven Antonio continues to work in an explosive manner, showing the perishibility of the world and existential thoughts.
His Italian roots have a profound influence on his work.
Steven spontaneously conducts an in-depth investigation that reflects on the existence and value of man in a world that is fleeting and transient. Since his roots are in the South of Italy, he was very inspired and attracted by every aspect of this landscape, but mainly the roughness and abstract shapes. The attraction to the landscape makes the work very grounded, earthly, and gives it character.
