Antonio Manuel

Portugal, 1947


Early in his career, he used newspapers as the canvas for his work. By applying ink, he would neutralize some news or images, while adding or highlighting others. Later on, he began using "flan" - embossed plasticized cardboard - as the matrix for printing newspapers. He even designed his own flans, inventing the news stories. The printed newspapers were distributed at newsstands as if they were authentic. He created a series of newspapers covering political themes, such as the 1968 student movement, as well as topics related to aesthetic and poetic discussions.
