His earlier work is within the realm of Magic Realism, yet his current work is often compared to the work of Francis Bacon and the psychology of Francisco de Goya. Manzo is inspired by various artists, yet his life in Mexico has instilled in him a high appreciation for folkloric and handcrafted Mexican art. His works is exhibited in the US, Canada, Mexico and Europe in galleries, museums and international art fairs.
