Manny Vega | painter, illustrator, printmaker, muralist, mosaicist
Talk about real. Manny Vega is super real. Legit all the way. All the way.
Praise the Lord.
As he tells it, to surrender is to trust in your angels, your madrina, the Gods, and the ancestors. Each second of creative action is trust in surrendering. Not surrendering as meek, but surrendering to the most high in silence and pure expression of sincere enthusiasm.
Manny is enthusiastic for the action of creating in the moment - one drawing is an 8-hour stretch. Here and there is a state of being.
