MARIO MANKEY

ARTIST STATEMENT

Under the name Mario Mankey, I manifest the underlying contradictions between human and primate.

My work focuses on the Anthropocene, created and accelerated by our patriarchal system. I approach human behaviors I find disturbing, highlighting the eternal inconsistencies that characterize the modern individual as a result of their ambitions and limitations.

The aesthetic game displays diversion but also sarcasm. Thus, the works are addressed at a diverse but thoughtful audience, capable to comprehend the artistic dialogue proposed. The pieces adopt different formats such as installations, canvases , street murals, comic books and are subject to any new challenge that might arise, being always loyal to this biting relationship.
