Manty Dey is a visual artist working in Atlanta, GA. Dey earned a BFA in painting and drawing from Georgia State University, and an MFA from the University of Georgia. Manty Dey creates paintings inspired by paper collage, botanical illustrations, and color field paintings. In these works, acrylic paint and ink washes are layered to create luminous floating abstractions. Opaque and transparent shapes shift across the surface, creating subtle undulating forms. Each layer unveils traces of intentional and improvised gestures as they accumulate and dissolve over time and temperament.
