“Hyper-realistic Banksy”

Street Art Hyperrealism: Manomatic questions our relationship with the destructive automatism of our day-to-day lives, the convention and routine. Manomatic is a creative automate, born from the consumerist machinery, born from Warhol and definitely Post-Pop. Then we could link his work to the Obey’s and Banksy’s counter-culture: While these two artists are using stencil techniques, Manomatic’s speciality is hyperrealism: it means more than photorealism, by adding the subversive and divergent message to the figuration.

Being a street artist for him was obviously the only choice, in order to transmit his thoughts to the people. At the glance, he seduces us with figurative realism to trap the ones who casually pass by, and propagates his message: the blind happiness in our society today. Being happy with high morale becomes politically correct.

 

“Personally, I like communication and not encryption, as I believe that works should touch the public.

Art should touch, it should communicate, and if it doesn’t it´s not worth it, in my opinion, no matter the verdict of a reduced group of people or art critics.”
