Trained at the School of Arts and Crafts in Oviedo, Manzano took up the practice of sculpture in the company of Daniel Gutiérrez. Revealing an interest for the potential of materials and for the formulations of Constructivism, his early work already expressed a primordial concern for the objectual and for the play of scales prior to his research into other vernaculars that lead to his more mature work, in which we see a resurfacing of that initial interest for the symbolic value of objects, their decontextualisation and ability to dialogue with space from a viewpoint not exempt from irony or social critique.
