With legions of his shadowy figures appearing everywhere from Paris to Uruguay, painter and sculptor De La Mano has adorned the world's streets with monochromatic, outsized murals exploring the relationships that humans have with each other, as well as their wider environment. His smaller scale pieces on canvas and paper tackle the same topical themes in miniature form, sometimes adding coffee stains in an echo of aged found objects.
