Michael Manares

?Michael Manares is a self taught artist based in San Diego, CA. You can say that Michael has been a recognized artist since the age of 5, when he gained local notoriety in his elementary school. His art painting was so excellent that his teacher was thrilled to share this masterpiece with the rest of the school. As, any artist can attest, art can be a lonely place where it?s tough to make a living. Michael figured this out early on and reluctantly shelved his artistic endeavors right before high school to focus on a more stable career in electronics. But art was always on his mind, thanks in part to his creative talent which came in handy finding unique solutions to sticky problems. Then came the opportunity to move from the east coast to southern California, where so much creative talent resides. It was time, he felt, to trade in his engineering skills for a full time artist?s smock and unleash all those creative juices that had been quiescent for so long. His first commercial foray into the artistic world combined his natural talents with his engineering skills, making unique stylistic jewelry. He really enjoyed fashioning innovative pieces using resin/exotic wood and became ever more excited about the range of possibilities resin presented. This led to a decision to experiment with resin as a medium. The results have been nothing less than spectacular. Constantly innovating, testing, and combining his creative genius with his analytical skills has led to works such that all who view them quickly run out of superlatives. Don?t just look, feel. Michael uses multiple layers of resin, paint, ink, dye, and pigment to create a completely unique effect. He also has created a three dimensional technique in his resin art that is truly one-of-kind which makes him standout from the rest of the crowd? Literally! The variety of textures doesn?t just add many dimensions to the more traditional 2D approaches, it puts a whole new perspective on creative expressionism.
