Lou Mannock - OZLAND Visiting Artist - October 2009

Illustrator, Louie Mann (AKA Lou Mannock) born in Cali, Colombia came to the States at a young age and in high school won the "Hanely" award for best art student! He studied fashion illustration at the 'Fashion Institute of Technology' in New York where he now lives/works.

Louie experimented with different techniques & mediums, like the stylish use of comic book art but now concentrates only on pen & ink illustrations & photoshops his work to bring out their most classical sense.

With Louie's artwork, the observer realizes that his pieces invoke a sense of mysticism & spiritual adventure. They becomes like 'Alice' tumbling down a dark rabbit hole that deeply portrays Louie's inner psyche & shows his passion & love for painting. Louie Mann's art is honest storytelling at its best that fires up emotions with his many controversial masterpieces.

Lou's DARK MATERIALS Series will get you in the mood for Halloween...Make sure to grab the free gift that Lou has made special for those who visit his exhibit at the OZLAND Art Gallery.
