Fun and vibrant floral abstraction with lots of surface textures and playful shapes. The painting was pieced together like a collage where shapes overlap and collide with colors and patterns. Blue, pink, purple, violet and green over a subtle black backdrop.

Getting to Know Manty

Manty Dey paints objects of adornment that offer moments of visual indulgence. Her floral-inspired style takes inspiration from color field paintings, Indian textiles, geodes and rituals. In a multi-step process, Manty often dries sheets of acrylic paint that she then cuts and collages onto canvas for added depth and shadow. She explains, “the paint is a physical material, the color has a glow, and its cast shadows create volume... to make each painting breathe and vibrate.” Based in Atlanta, Manty received a BFA in painting and drawing from Georgia State University and an MFA from the University of Georgia. Manty’s work has been exhibited at MOCA GA Museum, Georgia Museum of Art, Macon Museum of Arts and Sciences, and Lyndon House Art Center.
