Abel Manalo is a San Francisco based artist, having taken painting classes at a community college, it enables him to envision and pursue his creative artistic passion.
In his creative process, he conveys that two original paintings created within different time and space, then weaving them together into an entirely different painting. He pushes the limits in his work, feeling the dynamic relationship in style and technique which he believes sets him apart in the contemporary art movement.
Visual elements of painting such as line, shape, tone, color, pattern, texture and form are highlighted through weaving thus creating variety of moods or atmosphere on the final image. Hand cutting and hand weaving strips of his paintings exemplify his commitment in concentration and meditation on each art piece. The weave patterns and physical manipulation of merging paintings create physical texture that conveys the energy he puts on his artwork. Often times, he has a preconceive image within his conceptual framework however there is always an element of uniqueness on his woven artwork when completed.
He currently maintains an art studio since 1998 at the Hunters Point Shipyard, the largest artist colony in the United States and exhibited in several local galleries.
