Retro Manni (aka Manjeet Gill) is a Birmingham based digital artist. Taking inspiration from Retro Wave and Cyberpunk culture, his work often depicts modern cities, utopian structures and vibrant neon colours with traditional oil style brush work. While his day job as a filmmaker and educator roots him in the realism of everyday life, he began painting during the 2020 lockdown as means to distort that reality into something darker, more dream-like and ethereal. He has collaborated with a number of well established instagram photographers to transform their night photography using a blend of painterly brush strokes and a vibrant Retro Wave palette. He is currently planning a number of animations that bring life to his creations, merging his filmmaking expertise with his new found love of painting.
