Manuel Seita was born on 10-06-1970 in Vila Verde de Ficalho, Portugal. Lives and works in Almodvar (PT)
My artistic work covers several areas. I try that my work can be related to the viewer as well as the space where it is exposed. Generally, working with various materials. Each material, has unique characteristics and qualities. Trying to understand how different materials are related to each other. Basically trying to investigate their potential for art. In the works I present, the action of the spectator is very important (cut leaves suspended in space). The viewer is invited to blow for the work, interacting with this. These works are drawings, sculptures but also fragile and very simple, disarming of artificed.
