Ashurt Art Pize London
2018 Selected to the British art prize Ashurst Emerging Art prize London with catalog and exhibition for three months
“The judges wrote about my work:
"Manuel Remeggio is originally from Italy and studied Fine Art in Venice and then at Middlesex University. Manuel’s practice explores the idea of aporia – an internal contradiction or battle. He uses his work to create a dialogue on this battle, explored through his visual decisions. His shortlisted work is part of the ‘Painting to Improve Life’ series which represent the internal faces or people through their composition."”
