     He began painting in childhood. At the age of 12 his vision began to decline and by the age of 15 he was nearly blind. During the next four years he became discouraged by the quality of his paintings due to his failing sight. At the ages of 18 and 19 his eyes were operated on in Russia and thanks to a transplant in both eyes he regained his sight.


His experience in sculpture and video at times takes him further away from painting and at others, closer. His pictorial vision of the human being is based on a body in rapid motion, which often appears as a savage human or a startled animal remains consistent. Manhal Issa lives in Paris, he continues creating in these three art forms.
