Manuel Donada comes from the animation, you can tell when you see his work, a crazy mixture between Ditko, Metal Hurlant and the Cartoon Network (he worked for Cartoon Network at a time). Then restlessness led him to explore other worlds, and in 1996 got into graphic design, also founded the punk music label GSSH! GSSH! Records, and most recently, started a lowbrow art gallery in his own studio, the Watdafac Gallery.

Thanks to several exhibitions in Lisbon, Los Angeles, Rome, Berlin, Chicago and Barcelona, El País appointed him as "one of the most important young Spanish artists at the moment."

"Codex-Phapelinux II" the exhibition that will be showing in Fatbottom, consists of a selection of sketches, which begin as a red and blue doodle and end up as a careful ink drawing. It is the second installment in the series, in which among other things, we'll be able to see some of his rarely seen orginal art. It is a visual journey through the process when making his artwork.
