Piero Manrique
Mamaroneck, New York

Piero Manrique paints artworks with a distinct luminescence and bright color palette. He finds inspiration in change, evolution, and discovery. “My art is like nature, it never repeats, it keeps changing and evolving.” In his current series, Piero works mainly with his fingers and special pouring techniques. “The beauty of many of these paintings is how they keep changing as they dry.” He currently lives in Mamaroneck, New York. Fun fact: Piero always tells his clients to feel the painting and let it tell the story.

Hi Piero- I received your wonderful painting 2 days ago and it was more than I expected. "Romantic Night" captured the color, thrill and romance of New York City. The city that never sleeps!!! I will continue to follow your work. Cheers, Frank

Piero Manrique 3/1/2015 | 11:23 PM

Thank you so much for your message. You're right, I relied on straight lines and dramatic perspective to create the energy in this painting. Lately as I have been walking around the city, I have been very impressed by the power created by the long stretches of city blocks flanked by the angular towers of the surrounding skyscrapers. I've been invited by Amazon Art - in conjunction with UGallery - to paint a similar image as a mural at the Affordable Art Fair this month. Hope To c you there.

I love this piece Piero. Your New York pieces, like the "59th Street Bridge" I bought, portray my city as something beyond phenomenal. "NY Streets" captures its energy perfectly. Your use of curvaceous color is always breathtaking, but with this one, the straight rapid lines of hues narrate the piece. Makes me even prouder to be a New Yorker. Thank you.

Piero Manrique 1/20/2015 | 8:57 PM

I really appreciate your comments. It's important to me to create original paintings that come from my own personal perspective. I'm glad you like them.

A Smith 1/20/2015 | 12:07 PM

Hi Piero. I bought "The Diver" and think its amazing. It struck a chord with me being an athlete. The painting is strong and confident. I like the colors and the movement. Thank you.

My husband and I bought this painting for our mantel over the fireplace. It is the statement piece in the room and people have walked in and been awed by it. We literally get people saying, "Wow"! We were thrilled to find a piece that intertwines geometric lines with passionate brushtrokes and I love the hint of human form. The colors work great in our living space. I am impressed with Piero's work and look forward to following his career. I have been an art lover for a long time and was excited to purchase such an exceptional piece.

Piero Manrique 4/15/2010 | 10:53 PM

Jeff I want to thank you for you kind words and as an artist it fills my soul that my work inspires you. I want to create work that inspires and that opens the minds to new worlds. I want to let you know that Balance was transformed to perseverance, see the piece carfully and you will see it. This is one of many hidden secrets in the piece.

Jeff L 4/15/2010 | 7:18 PM

Wow. Your work is amazing and deeply moving. I saw your painting "Balance" here last summer, and was really taken with the off- kilter geometry and mock symmetry of it. When I checked back, "Balance" was gone, but "Courage", "Calm", and "Perseverance" had all been added. I can't express how happy it makes me to have these three paintings. I draw inspiration from them, and I see something new each time I look. "Perseverance," especially, is a psychedelic masterpiece; within the confines of the frame are numberless worlds to be explored. Thank you.

Comments About This Piece

Charging through the water, a swimmer navigates the waves. The energy of his strokes come alive in a fantastic arrangement of colors. This innovative painting was produced with a combination of brushstrokes and advanced pouring techniques using semi and high gloss acrylic paints. While pouring, I use my fingers to throw and mix the paint, and sticks to guide the paint across the canvas, creating a highly textured surface. The piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It comes ready to hang.

Acrylic painting

Acrylic paint was made commercially available in the 1950’s. Acrylic is a fast drying paint that can be diluted with water, but becomes water-resistant when dry. Acrylics can be applied in thin layers and washes to resemble watercolor paints, or they can be applied in thick layers, built up for texture. The main difference between oil and acrylic paint is the drying time. Oil dries slowly, allowing more time to blend colors and apply glazes. Artists who use acrylic paints typically work faster than those who use oils. Additionally, acrylics offer more versatility and are often used for mixed media work. Artists can mix different materials into the paint, such as sand or rice. They can also apply other media on top of the dried acrylic, such as pastel or pen.

Stretched canvas

Canvas is a heavy-duty fabric used as a painting surface. When a canvas artwork is labeled stretched, it means the canvas has been wrapped around a wooden frame (the ''stretcher''). Stretched canvases typically do not require framing.


A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
