This drawing represents a banal scene of daily life as I like to depict them. Here two young women are waiting to cross at a pedestrian crossing. We are in the city of Kyoto, near the old district of Gion, on Higashioji dori avenue, opposite, we can see one end of the very long and famous Shijö dori artery, both sides of which are lined with green metal arcades typical of the 50s. This watercolor is made from a photo I took myself during a trip in 2019. In photography as in drawing, I like to blend into the city and I prefer the shots that a walker would naturally find rather than those of a camera in hand. So I make portraits of the city rather than portraits of its inhabitants. This watercolour is 50/34 cm on a sheet of art paper Fabriano 350g with a size of 60/47cm.

Orlando Manuel was born in Paris and lives in Barcelona. After studying law and political science and travelling in many countries, he finally decided to turn to writing and drawing. He has always been interested in art and his love for the details of imagery specific to Japanese culture, such as prints, contributed to his decision to take up drawing.

Orlando Manuel began this adventure as a self-taught 11 years ago. Influenced by Japan, where he has stayed many times, and by writing, his drawing can be read as line after line of work, a gentle description of the simplicity and ordinariness of everyday life. Orlando Manuel likes to draw from the photos he takes during his travels. He likes powerful or subtle lines in black ink, enhanced with watercolour to breathe life into his subjects.

He sometimes prefers the calm elegance of black and white and grey tones. But his work is always about details. His medium of choice is the paper he uses most of the time. He has an absolute love for the subtlety of his touch and the incomparable precision it allows. Orlando Manuel draws with black felt pen or Indian ink and for colour he uses the dry watercolour technique.
