Michael Vincent Manalo, born in Manila, Philippines in 1986.
I work as one of the main artists for a Swiss magazine, Zeitpunkt and as a freelance book cover and album package designer and photographer. For my artistic achievements, I have been given several grants and awards: First Prize in the Digital Art Category: Chianciano International Award for Digital and Photographic Art 2010 (IT), Best Photography Illustration from the Redmond Digital Arts Festival, 2011 (USA), Travel and Honorarium Grant given by the Mayor Herbert Bautista and Vice Mayor Joy Belmonte of the Quezon City local government, 2011, (PH), the Dizel Grant given by the ISIS Arts UK as travel expenses from Manila, Philippines to Wolsingham, England for the Nomadic Village Artist-in-Residence Program, 2012 (GB).
I have recently developed several curatorial and cultural projects such as the Balay Kalamragan Artist-in-Residence in San Miguel, Leyte and a recent curatorial project entitled “The Chronicles of the Rainmakers” at the Kulay-Diwa Gallery of Philippine Contemporary Art in Paranaque, Philippines.
Aside from these, I express and gratify myself through digital mixed-media, site-specific installations, musical performances and photography. My work is inspired by the imagined memories of nostalgic and dream-like environments; which documents their decline into post-apocalyptic and nightmarish creations and takes paths along the lines of socio-cultural issues and universal emotions of the human self.
I have also participated in solo and group exhibitions, artist-in-residence programs, art festivals, lecture and workshop presentations in Australia, Azerbaijan, England, Georgia, Germany, Italy, Japan, Lithuania, Philippines, Poland, Serbia, Singapore, Spain, and the USA. My artworks are in the collections of Bielska BWA Gallery in Bielsko-Biała, Poland; Kulay-Diwa Gallery of Philippine Contemporary Art in Paranaque, Philippines; The Parlour Arts Laboratory in Melbourne, Australia; Fellini Gallery in Berlin, Germany; and in the Georgian National Museum in Tbilisi, Georgia.
