Manu Campa

Manu Campa was born in Madrid in 1983 and obtained his degree in Fine Arts in 2008 from the UCM.  Since then he has not stopped doing his passion: painting classic cars. Gone are his beginnings in the art of portraiture and capturing everyday scenes and urban landscapes.

In recent years he has become a benchmark in motor world, where he is fully concentrated. His unmistakable layout is the use of colorful and solid backgrounds and his ability to faithfully reproduce the most iconic models of classic cars and unique examples. This has taken Manu from Madrid to galleries, fairs and private collectors around the world. These go from the Miami Art Week, where he has made a name for itself among art and car collectors, to art galleries in Tokyo and cities such as Lisbon, Biarritz or New York, among others.

Now he is focused on a more realistic and figurative art, but with the freshness of pop art. Manu Campa’s paintings are highly recognizable, thus having created an own and unique identity thanks to details such as the reflections or the brightness of each of his paintings, which are his particular hallmark.

Thanks to this almost natural association with the automotive scene and his charisma, he has made a logical place for himself as an ambassador and friend of great big brands such as Mini, Tag Heuer or Porsche, among the most outstanding.
