about the artist…
Emmanuel "manucollage" is a French artist, from Toulouse who has already had many extraordinary experiences and has travelled the world. He is set to take the art world by storm not only with his unforgettable art pieces but also his particular brand of personality, charisma, charm and bold approach.
His unique and outstanding art is created using original retro movie promotion posters and other advertising material which was created for street walls.
His concept behind these beautiful edgy collages is to re-create the look of a urban street wall which has been exposed over time to the elements which in itself creates a piece of urban history and poetry. Each one unique, very often displaying iconic and instantly recognisable images from a given period. His particular technique and artistic eye make his work very different from anything else that exists in the genre of street art.
Manucollage's uses décollage to create his works. Décollage is a French word meaning literally to unstick, generally associated with a process used by artists of the nouveau réalisme (new realism) movement that involved making art from posters ripped from walls.
