About Manss Aval
A naturalist, Manss has dedicated much of his time studying wildlife. Through a juxtaposition of images his work captivates movements in time and space, creating enchanted sceneries with animals at center stage. In his recent Eden series, for instance, presents seemingly futile avian attempts to evade environmental infernos of a disintegrating planet.
His Heron Dreams series orchestrates the grace, agility and elegance of these birds into evocative, dramatic, romantic, sometime surreal symphonies of pure natural beauty. His works levitate between fantasy and mysterious quantum space, leaving the viewer in meditative explorations of familiar memories, dreams and perhaps alien realities. To experience the full impact of his works they have to be viewed in life-size large format: the herons then fully emerge as playful, strong and sensitive individuals whom one cannot avoid to adore and respect. The series Through the Looking Glass is an intriguing journey into a realm where imagination ostensibly morphs into reality.
His fine art and photographic work has been exhibited at over 30 juried group and solo shows in San Diego, Pasadena, Florence, Los Angeles, New York, Paris, Toronto and Merida. He is recipient of many national and international awards and his work has appeared in a number of publications.
Just recently Manss Aval was featured down on Times Square in NYC on two of the largest billboards for the #seemetakeover art display on July 24th.
