Born at the beginning of the 90 in one of the biparental families of the Marne, Manat has always been interested in the soundscape and Brazilian percussion.
He creates his first black metal band (Extreme Daniel Radcliffe Band) at the age of 15 and obtains his diploma at the music conservatory of Reims, specialized in drums.The band enjoyed some success due to the energetic performance on stage, and, during 10 years, he toured across France, from underground bars to national music festivals.But, as a result of cardiovascular discomfort caused by the absorption of a large amount of aspirin, Manat decides to turn the pate « Rock’n roll » of his life.

He definitively changed his way of life, and rented a workshop in west Montpellier to devote himself to his new creative passion, painting.
Real emotional choc, he then decides to make it his profession  as autodidacte.
Manat still lives and works in the south of France, with this particular light, that the artist know so well.
His work becomes a great success, recognizable to his portraits of humanized monkeys on abstract background. Treating the themes of his youth, tattoos and rock n roll, and other more classical univers on various medium.
When asked the question : « Does the semantics of your work emancipate itself constantly from an academic analysis, or even a primordial rejection of the limit that underlies your work? » He answers « yes » in all simplicity, because he is a simple man first and foremost.

The gallery’s words

I discovered Manat’s work on the web, amused and caught by this work that represents humains attitude and comportement in gorillas and monkeys, we got in touch and met each other. I met an artist who takes real pleasure in exploring and provoking through his creation. Manant does not taking himself seriously, he is in the amusement and fun, which ended up convincing me if I still needed to be convinced.
