Of Spanish decent, Georges Mamàn was born in Algeria in 1954. He now lives and works in Montreal.
At a young age, Mamàn began painting and drawing. Even while completing his medical degree and later specializing in anesthesiology, Mamàn never left painting behind. Aftertaking time off to travel, he came to the realization that art was his true passion and decided to devote himself entirely to painting.By intertwining elements of abstraction and figuration, Mamàn creates what he describes as “city portraits.” “I refer to the space I paint as a city,” explains the artist, “because the term symbolises unity. I paint portraits of cities, of space, or groupings of people… The city is my chosen context; it is the pretext of my paintings. The human figure appears unexpectedly.” Interestingly, the human shape always appears vertically in Mamàn’s city portraits. “I made the conscious decision of always representing Man in the vertical position to show Him in action, in an urban context.”
Mamàn’s work is part of several public and private collections in France, Belgium, Germany, Canada and the United States.
