FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: A’ DESIGN AWARD COMPETITION HONORS DESIGNER MANSS AVAL Conjugates Art by Manss Aval, Manss Aval Fine Art is Winner in the Photography and Photo Manipulation Design Category, 2016 – 2017.

SAN DIEGO (May 5, 2017) – Professional photographer and visual artist MANSS AVAL of San Diego was presented by the Como. Italy-based A’ Design Award & Competition Award in the Photography and Photo Manipulation Design Category for his project “Conjuagtes” by the 173-person grand jury panel of the A’ Design Award & Competition which consists of internationally influential press members, established designers, leading academics and established professionals. Out of over 35 thousand project submissions from over 180 nations Manss Aval’s design was one of the few selected category winners.


Manss Aval, the creator of the awarded photography design work Conjugates explains “This project deals with the inherent beauty of geometric constructs. Photographs of real objects are used to explore how nominally inanimate geometric elements can morph into moving, transforming, three-dimensional constructs. Here ordinary spirals can assume dynamic shapes with a flexible and growing, multigonal boundary of abundant complexity and depth and the viewer’s eyes embark on a journey that draws them to multiple locations. Complexity in deceiving simplicity.”

“Among the countless modern artists who have focused on geometry are Frank Stella, Ilya Bolotowsky, Robert Hudson, Piet Mondrian, Kazimir Malevich, and Victor Vasarely. The majority of these prior artists employed paintings as their preferred medium. The greatest challenge was to find a new photography-based and distinct, aesthetically pleasing, two-dimensional format. The “virtual animation” alluded to above could not be presented in an explicit, stepwise fashion with accompanying “blue prints”. It needed to be kept minimalist and merely suggestive of the transformations and simultaneously meet critical objectives of appropriate composition, color and rendering.” View the award winning design here.

Design Team for “Conjugates” Conjugates was realized by Manss Aval.
