Manart means, "Manufactured Art". It is something which looks like it was crafted by an artist, such as a sculpture, but was in fact manufactured based on a pre-determined specification.
Manart is often designed by those with no artistic experience, such as by decisions on committees or boards of directors.
Person 1: The new sculptures in the town centre are wonderful; they make the place look so much better.
Person 2: They are typical manart. No artist was involved, the council just ordered them from spec.
