About the Artwork:
"My Artistic Soul: A Deep Dive into 'Soul Vibrations'"
'Soul Vibrations' is a distinctive series where I plunge headfirst into my paintings, infusing each stroke with a sliver of my soul. It's more than just artwork—it's an emotional treasure trove that invites viewers to a dance of feelings."
The painting was created with oil paints on a uniquely textured composite aluminum panel.
Thanks to the use of spacers, the artwork “floats” on the wall in an aura of beautiful light, made possible by the app-controlled LED backlighting.

Andrew Manaylo's 'Soul Vibrations' series is a testament to his belief in the power of the emotional component in the creative process, encapsulating the essence of Edgar Degas' sentiment, "Art is not what you see, but what you make others see." The series is a testimony to the artist's exploration of abstract expressionism, revealing a more profound understanding of the emotional experience intrinsic to his art, pushing the boundaries of artistic expression much like Henri Matisse did when he said, "Creativity takes courage."
The physical properties of artistic materials take center stage in Manaylo's paintings, emphasizing the undulating landscape of emotions and experiences. His approach to painting, deeply personal and immersive, is rooted in the philosophy of art as an experience, as a journey, not merely a destination. The paintings become a reflection of his subconscious, revealing an innovative and courageous approach that aligns with the belief of Georgia O'Keeffe: "I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way—things I had no words for."
