I am Emanuele Citera, and I go as “Manny” as my art name. I was born in Rimini, on the Eastern coast of Italy, on February 8, 1990. I moved to New York in 2017, where I am currently living.

If I were to define myself in a few words, I would say “a creative, free-spririted Aquarius’’, who hates labels and develops multiple interests (to avoid being lost and depressed!). Indeed, I think of myself as an artist, for I apply creativity to everything I do, and find a common thread among different interests (on which you can read more below).

As you navigate my website, you will notice that in describing what I am doing I use a narrative and biographical approach, mostly for two reasons. First, brevity is not one of my skills! Second, I am a big fan of storytelling, and I believe it is necessary to show you myself and the journey which brought me here.

If you are interested in what I do, follow me on the social platforms where I am active, and feel free to get in touch with me anytime.
