The Nebraska Arts Council is devoted to a mission that includes, among several key points, serving as a catalyst to connect people through the arts and creative concepts. Especially in these more socially distant times, we are not as able to connect in the arts world as normal. To achieve this goal regardless, we are implementing a new program by organizing an online Nebraska Artist showcase to highlight one artist a month from the NAC touring roster, teaching roster and Individual Artist Fellowship.
David Manzanares is an indigenous immigrant artist living in the United States since 2017. For over 15 years Manzanares has dedicated his artistic work to the production of figurative art, in a continuous experimentation with a wide variety of materials. The themes that permeate his work are reflections around three conceptual axes that are intrinsically related: identity - both individual and collective - the human being and migration.
