Born in 1975 in the city of Salamanca in northwestern Spain, David De La Mano obtained a degree in Fine Art from the University of Salamanca. Majoring in stone carving and sculpture studies, David went on to earn his PhD in Public Art at the University of Valencia.
David de la Mano is best known for his stunning murals often depicting silhouettes, trees and other monochromatic imagery. His large-scale, black and white pieces provoke reactions among the viewers and encourage their emotions and ideas through a minimalist aesthetic. The artist not only observes others and their social or anti-social behavior, but explores every corner of social behavior in his practice. He uses silhouettes of man, woman, or the masses as narrative metaphors. Through these figures, he gives poetic visions of the human condition in society and the ways human perceive the world.
His pieces can be found throughout his native Spain, as well as across the world in countries throughout Europe, North and South America, and beyond.
