Lo­ca­tion: Por­tu­gal Web: www.manuel­mor­ Email: mail@manuel­mor­ ME DIA: Pho­to­shop, pen­cil, brush, inks From comics and movies to Baroque and Re­nais­sance art, Manuel’s in­flu­ences are many and var­ied – al­though he par­tic­u­larly likes the work of Rubens, Ver­meer and Car­avag­gio.

“My work is eas­ily adapted to dif­fer­ent sub­jects,” he says, “to con­vey ideas or pro­mote prod­ucts in ad­ver­tis­ing. But I pre­fer se­quen­tial art as it helps me bet­ter tell a story or come up with con­cept art to cre­ate new worlds and crea­tures.”

The Por­tuguese artist has worked on a string of com­mis­sions, both at home and abroad, and is al­ways look­ing for new chal­lenges.

1 Sa­mu­rai Show­down “A typ­i­cal fight scene with a Ja­panese theme. A rogue sa­mu­rai fights his mas­ter. What I like the most here is the light­ing and the dark ef­fect of the over­all light.”

2 Mad Max­ine “I nor­mally don’t do sci-fi pic­tures, but I wanted some prac­tise in the genre. It’s also a homage to the Mad Max se­ries, from a fe­male point of view.”
