Werdegang / Ausbildung: 
Veronica Manchego is a New Zealand artist living in Berlin. Her practice involves working with found images, transforming them into drawings, collages, video, painting and digital imagery. Between 2006 and 2008 she was a director of Cross Street Studios, an artist run space she co-founded in Auckland, New Zealand. Since graduating in 2008 from Elam School of Fine Arts, she has exhibited in New Zealand, Turkey, UK, and Germany, alongside making numerous music videos and illustrations for publications. Manchego’s interests since graduating have shifted from digital techniques to mixing digital techniques with classical crafts, namely painting and drawing, while questioning what is valued aesthetically and artistically. An occurring topic in Manchegos work is self actualization - referencing past events and topics such as Lebensreform, the Olympics and mainstream media- in order to express modern day societal expectations. Although the topics Manchego deals with are quite serious, humor still plays a huge role in her work. Her approach often omits aspects to reveal contradictions that encourage the viewer to imagine, reflect, remember or create.
