David de la Mano

David de la Mano, a Uruguay based artist, creates poetic depictions of human and spirit worlds that collide. His figures, always painted in silhouette, draw from anthropological studies, folklore and people-watching to combine the past, present and future.

In About Memory, David offers an imaginative scene of a journey both dystopian and hopeful. Centered between Mark Warren Jacques’ celestial vision and Ricky Lee Gordon’s idyllic seascape, the murals on this long wall can be read as a tale of origin, life, and the hereafter that may flow or become one and the same.
