Michael V Manalo

Michael V Manalo is a digital artist from the Philippines who creates strongly emotional photo composites. I really like Manalo's work, as it has a very charming simplicity which really appeals to me, as it means focus on the emotion behind the image, rather than the content and detail. The only dissapointing thing about Manalo's work is that he primarily uses stock images, and only takes a few of the photos himself.
"There were a lot of emotions - pain, happiness, love and warmth, glory, success, failures, torture, jealousy, excitement, rage, pride. All these converged and met at a common point in time and space and created who I am, what I want to explore and what I hope to achieve." - Michael V Manalo
