Artist + Connor McManus

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

Connor’s 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 his work blends these natural inspirations with cultural ones. Connor draws from the great aesthetic contributions of world religions and philosophies of life. Connor enjoys gardening, building furniture, admiring architecture, rock climbing, and traveling with his camera. He lives with his wife and their three cats in an old craftsman house in the Milan neighborhood of New Orleans.
