giger bar - Eclectix artitecture

Artitechture = Art & Architecture

For all you Giger fanatics out there (and we know there are a lot of you…), a visit and drink at one of the Alen Bars by artist H.R. Giger is definitely on your travel menu. There are two Alien Bars – one in in Gruyères, Switzerland and one in Chur, Switzerland. And we can’t imagine that a  more artful surreal place to have a cocktail exists on the planet.

david seidman - eclectix art

Featured Artist: David Seidman

We don’t feature a lot of digital art here at Eclectix, but when we do it’s full of original creativity and imagination that cannot be denied. David Seidman’s art is all that and more – a feast of dark and pop surrealism which inspire beautiful meanderings of the eye. His marriage of all the techniques modern-day technology and old school classicism has to offer, result in phantasmagorias worthy of swoons.


Art On The Web

It’s not often that I go to a Tumblr site and just can’t pull away. However, the well curated site - The Villa of Ormen - did just that, pulled me in for an extended darkly fantastic voyage. If you like otherworldly, surreal, mysterious imagery with haunted overtones, this is the bomb. Bits of words of wisdom, philosophical quotes and symbolism also sprinkle this site, in between the stunningly gorgeous images.

Voyager Danny van Ryswyk

Featured Artist: Danny van Ryswyk

Danny van Ryswyk works digitally, producing prints and 3D sculptures of moody and contemplative characters, often within dark themes and settings. While his older works are reminiscent of other contemporary pop surrealists works – we love Danny’s newer works, which are evolving with a strong sense with their own identity.
