Jose Manuel Chanis

Jose Manuel is a self-taught Panamanian painter. From a young age he was captivated by nature, with the need to express that love leading him to paint.

Jose Manuel has exhibited in numerous solo and group shows in Panama. He has worked in watercolours and ink and has exhibited and sold his work in the Panama’s Casco Viejo. He was also invited to restore an important art piece by Juan Manuel Cedeño, one of the leading painters in the country.

He has painted in many styles throughout his life, including natural landscapes and cityscapes of the Panama Canal. We are excited to launch his new venture painting insects, capturing their beautifully intricate details in oils and acrylics on canvas.

Jose Manuel has won many prizes in different art competitions in Panama.
