Manu VB Tintoré
Born in 1964 in Brussels, Belgium .
Postgraduate in 2000 by the Escola d’Art d’Olot, he started his artistic career as a sculptor and painter. All his work is tied to the idea of the human being, its future and relation with the environment that surrounds it. Ten years of work as an international agriculture engineer for ONU in diverse developing countries of Africa and America impregnate his artwork with both an overwhelming globality and existentialism.
He describe his work as a meditation on the contemporary man and his limits but also about the power that he is able to exert on space and nature, approaching an increasingly fragile balance. The focus is on rediscovering the imprint of man, his capacity to dialogue with nature, to participate in an increasingly needed thinking on the relationship between man and nature.
Nowadays, he lives in Catalonia near Barcelona.
