Artist + Connor McManus

I am a New Orleans-based artist from Lafayette. In 2013, I graduated from Brown University with Honors in Visual Art and Urban Studies. Since then, I have split my time between making art and working at a planning and design firm where I focus on graphic design, architectural design, and community engagement around coastal issues. I've shown my work at Lounge Gallery in Lafayette, Perch, Where Y'art, and Old 77 Hotel and Chandlery in New Orleans, and View Gallery in Mississippi.

My artwork is inspired by the forms repeated throughout nature – the structures of trees, rivers, and plant leaves; the grown networks of cities as seen from above; and the beautiful harmonics found in color, sacred geometry, and music. Much of my work blends these natural inspirations with cultural ones. I draw from the great aesthetic contributions of world religions and philosophies of life. I enjoy gardening, building furniture, admiring architecture, rock climbing, and traveling with my camera. I live with my wife and our three cats in an old craftsman house in the Milan neighborhood of New Orleans.
