overview

Piero Manrique was born on December 20, 1981 in Lima, Peru. He started drawing at the age of five and it was introduced to painting techniques when he arrived in the US at the age of 13.

After graduating from high school and accomplishing outstanding achievement in painting he began his trail as an artist at Purchase College State University of New York (SUNY Purchase) where after a year he decided to expand his vision and enrolled in the architecture school at Parsons School of Design. During his studies, Architecture began to shape his vision to a more complex and elaborate image of the world.

Manrique paints and creates to inspire advancement in life. Within a form there are complex environments that he dissects through his vision. Evolution and creation are always happening and through his work he wants to generate these events.

For Manrique life is a complex puzzle filled with forms, shapes, light and color. Life is truly magical, if we go too fast we will miss its hidden secrets. He wants you to imagine and fantasy. He wants you to merge into his paintings and see yourself in different scales living in it. He wants you to open your mind to new horizons and grow.

For Manrique painting is a unique expression of the soul. For him a painting is not just a reflection of beauty but a profound message. His inspiration mainly comes from the forms of landscape, the complexity in Architecture, the strong spirits in Animals, dreams, unlimited universe, and the ultimate capacity of the human body.
