Manu De Mey was born in Antwerp in 1965, his mother a British artist and his father a Flemish accountant. With his art, Manu tries to create something visually striking and convey some sort of strong emotion.
His portraits often are ambiguous and this is mostly intentional. Manu’s world is populated with sad, melancholic people with suppressed emotion, often beautiful but damaged woman.
Manu has only started to come out with his work a few years ago and has had several expositions in Antwerp, Brussels, Amsterdam, Paris, Madrid, Italy, Monaco and Cairo.
Thanks to digital platforms Manu has sold a lot of his work internationally, including the USA, Ukrain, Hong Kong, Taiwan and all over Europe.
