Mani Vertigo is a multidisciplinary artist working primarily with paintings, sculptures and videos. Russian-born, Stockholm-based, Mani creates visceral, rough paintings featuring forms or silhouettes of faces and bodies and building abstraction around them. She strives to create an honest and evocative dialog with the viewer’s deepest and most vulnerable self, focusing on subconscious associations, primal emotions and feelings of human beings. She takes inspiration in the nature of things and people, juxtaposition of inner versus outer experience, life and death, matter and void, sufferings of flesh and soul. Mani Vertigo holds a BA degree from the University of Hertfordshire in Visual Communication. Her work has been exhibited widely in her native Russia as well as in Europe, the UK, Ecuador and the United States.
Mani has been living in Sweden for the past 3 years and has worked as head of Production Product for the Swedish startup Watty.
