Fine Art Maya is a Fine Art Gallery located in San Diego, CA that features talented artwork from a select group of Artists gifted in bringing fine art to life.
Without our Artists, Fine Art Maya would not exist and because of this we are continuing a series of Artist spotlights to recognize and appreciate our talented Artists.
This week we are pleased to feature Artist Manss Aval, one of the first Artists to display their art at the gallery.
Manss moved at a tender age to Germany where he stayed to attend college, then he traveled on to Canada where he completed his degrees in Vancouver and finally to San Diego.
Manss Aval presently concentrates on painting, photography, and sculptures and has a broad set of skills with backgrounds in media, communications and the sciences (including a Ph.D.).
A Nature enthusiast, Manss dedicated much time studying wildlife to captivate movements in time and space, creating enchanted sceneries with animals at center stage. His works levitate between fantasy and mysterious quantum space, leaving the viewer in meditative explorations of familiar memories, dreams and perhaps alien realities. His work feature a distinctly natural quality, full of soft, energetic shapes, earth tones, and subtle, vibrant colors and present a unique intersection of arts and science.
Manss has exhibited widely in over 70 juried solo and group shows from New York, to Barcelona, Florence, London, Paris, Rome, Tokyo and the Louvre Museum. His work is recognized by over 50 national and international awards, including these recently presented awards: Monochrome Photography Awards, 2016; Gala Awards, 8th Edition of the Pollux Awards, 2016; 10th Annual Black & White Spider Awards Nominee, 2015; Donkey Art Prize 3, finalist, 2015; Gala Awards, 7th Edition of the Pollux Awards and The Primary Colors Photography Competition, 2015; Art Quench Magazine, Featured Artist, November 2015; Arthur International Magazine’s Top 60 Masters of Contemporary Art, 2015 and many more.
In addition to Manss Aval’s artwork at the gallery and around the world, he also shares his work on his website, ManssAval.com.
