Inside the Studio of Manuel Zamudio as he prepares for ‘Sunsets In The Apocalypse’

Inside the studio of self-taught artist, Manuel Zamudio. His new line of work has been immensely inspired by great works of cinematography, street art, and post-apocalyptic sci-fi novels. Using portraits as a snapshot of his own movie, blending reality with the surreal.

Inspiration behind ‘Sunsets In The Apocalypse‘:
Ever since I was a child I was very interested in the apocalypse, sci-fi, comics and those kinds of things. In the last couple of years, I started getting into cinematography and trying to understand films a little bit more visually. So when I wanted to start changing the kind of work I was doing, transitioning from graffiti characters to more of a realistic body of work, I decided to use my love of film and my love of apocalyptic storytelling as inspiration. Then once the pandemic hit, I feel my work took much of a darker turn as far as the apocalyptic scenery. Like the classic line goes “does art imitates life?” here, life imitates art.
