David De La Mano X Nemo’s Collabo in Abandoned Uruguay

Posted on June 4, 2018

La Mano is on the run.

 

Here in this abandoned spot in Uruguay his fairies and wolves and princesses without dresses in high pointed hennin hats are running and prancing and headed for the door. A Spaniard living in Montevideo for the last five years David De La Mano says he has been working on an independent project of exploration involving neglected spaces like this one.

And when you come to visit, he’ll bring you along to discover the dilapidation – as he did recently with Italian Street Artist Nemo’s. While their somewhat unrelated individual styles have certain aspects that perplex or mystify, their combined powers are tripled here with Nemo’s dejected and tired men literally sliced open and De La Mano’s rampant and spooked animal spirits running at a gallop.

And what do these wolves represent as they burst from the chest of one and into the flesh vessel of another?

“I suppose it’s a little bit of everything, fear, emotions, ideas,” he tells us, “but also everything that we transfer from generation to generation without considering the reason that originated it.”
