Texas-born artist Paul Manes has mastered a range of media from charcoal and oil painting to burlap and kaolin, a clay mineral. His densely layered images often contain universally recognizable motifs supported by a conceptualized framework. For Manes, bowls are common objects which represent a connective thread amongst the global community. "Everybody, no matter how poor, across all cultures, has a bowl in his hands,” Manes says. “It can contain food, and hope, and often it is empty."

Paul Manes lives and works in New York City. He graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Lamar University (Texas) and later received a Masters of Fine Art from Hunter College (New York). His works have been exhibited across North America and Europe at galleries such as Kouros Gallery (New York), Pan American Arts Project (Texas), Marisa del Re Gallery (Italy), Jan Turner Gallery (Los Angeles), and Paul Rodgers/9W (New York). Manes's work is part of multiple public and private collections including that of Yoko Ono, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the Detroit Institute of Arts Museum, the Guggenheim Museum, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
