Art with Purpose
A series of profound happenings from 2000 onward greatly influenced the direction of his art career, he has since dedicated his life’s work to painting with a purpose. In addition to the many portrait commissions he receives each year much of his works feature endangered animals and will be soon compiled into a book “Before they are gone (2017)”
When you purchase his figurative work he donates to humanitarian charities
When you purchase his landscape or seascape art he donates to land and sea conservation efforts
When you purchase a pet portrait he donates to no-kill abandoned pet sanctuaries
When you purchase endangered species art he finds a charity that specifically helps that endangered species and donates to that charity.
With each sale Manupupule donates half of his profits from print and product sales to charities and organizations that assist in protecting and promoting each cause. Each painting sold establishes another legacy of endowment art that will continue to sell and generate revenue for charities long into the future.
His early works are mostly watercolors and are nature themed, later in his career his style adapted as he explored and developed new mediums, his works matured from pure realistic representational imagery to surrealism & hyper-realism. In his larger commissions you will find profound life-changing secrets encoded in very subtle symbolism.
