Of Spanish decent, Georges Maman was born in Algeria in 1954. He now lives and works in Montreal. By intertwining elements of abstraction and figuration, Maman creates what he describes as “city portraits.“” In his own words… “I refer to the space I paint as a city because the term symbolizes unity. I paint portraits of cities, of space, or grouping of people… The city is my chosen context; it is the pretext of my paintings. The human figure appears unexpectedly. I made the conscious decision of always representing Man in the vertical position to show Him in action, in an urban context.” Georges work is part of several public and private collections in France, Belgium, Germany, Canada and the United States.
