The artist Manu Blázquez consolidates an interest in technical drawing and graffiti throughout his high school years, an interest he later develops during his undergraduate studies at the Jaume I.
Upon leaving university and working as a graphic designer for some time, he spends a few years at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna, where he graduates with a thesis entitled “Comunicazione e riproducibilità” and works as a teaching assistant to Professor Cataldo Serafini for two years.
In late 2011, he enters a further stage in his career, this time in Greece with Professor Xenis Sachinis of the Aristotle University in Thessaloniki. Manuel currently lives in Valencia, where he continues his research on numbers and their plastic possibilities.
