Manuel Tainha
b. Lisbon, Portugal
Artist (Painter)

Manuel lives and works in Lisbon, Portugal. He studied at Faculty of Fine Arts of University of Lisbon and  at the class of Anselm Reyle at the Hamburg University of Fine Arts (HFBK). Tainha's work explores composition throught the alternance of processes, may it be addition/subtraction, or bidimentional/ objectual. The cultural value of  materials, limitation, violence in creation and the domestic condition are constants in his working process.
