Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Salamanca and PhD in Public Art from the University of Valencia, David is a versatile artist who excels in drawing and sculpture. The artist began his career in the early 1990s creating Land Art projects, installations and sculptures in the public space, and since 2008 his attention has focused on wall paintings.

The artist experiments with different techniques including acrylics, watercolors, ink and collage. Through a minimalist style, characterized by the monochrome use of black, David de la Mano is able to create extremely poetic works of art, a symbolic reflection on humanity. The artist's only anthropomorphic figures come together and unite in an eternal and recurrent movement; Individuals become mass and vice versa, and are driven by their dreams, ambitions, fears, vices, hopes, internal conflicts.
