Miltos Manetas (b. 1964) is a Greek-born painter, conceptual artist and theorist whose work explores the representation and the aesthetics of the information society. Manetas is the Founder of the Art Movement NEEN, a pioneer of art after video games (machinima) and an instigator of Internet Art. In 2009 Manetas initiated the INTERNET PAVILION for the Venice Biennial. In 2014, in collaboration with Rome's Swiss Institute, he introduced the concept of ÑEWPRESSIONISM. According to Lev Manovich, Manetas's work can be placed within a well-established tradition in modern painting (representing modern people in their particular modern settings). Manetas lives in Rome, New York and Bogota.
