BIO: Miltos Manetas was Born in Athens, Greece and studied visual arts in Brera-Milan, Italy. He lives and works between Paris and New York where he creates his "signature" work of oil on canvas paintings of wires, cables and computer hardware. Other creations entail short looped fragments for video games such as Tomb Raider, exhibitions of computer-generated vibra-colour prints, and the commissioning of an advertising agency and cognitive scientists to create and vet an ‘-ism’ to describe his own work.
