Manuel Mendive Hoyo creates paintings, sculptures, and objects that capture the rhythm of the orishas, ancestral spirits of Africa that are the source of his imagery.

For today's world, Mendive continues to appropriate, transform and adapt the visual language of Africa as a means of conveying its rich mythology to a new audience, informed less about its ritual than about its aesthetics.
