Tuco Amalfi - Eclectix art

Visionary Art: Tuco Amalfi

We fell in love with the visionary art of Tuco Amalfi – dreamlike and full of psychedelic light, bursting with vibrant colors. It sends us into spiritual oblivion with lovely hallucinations – spirals of geometric patterns cast themselves onto cerebral landscapes. Art which transcends the physical world and portrays a wider vision of awareness including spiritual or mystical themes… otherworldly botanicals which beg us to jump in and take a trip.

Kirsty_Mitchell_Eclectix art

Kirsty Mitchell’s photography is an ethereal wonderland of lush fairy tales and historical fantastical dress set in beautiful woodlands – inspired by her memories of her mother reading aloud to her. She worked with Alexander McQueen’s studio and finished her costume studies at the London College of Fashion.

After her mother’s death, Kirsty immersed herself in photography to deal with the trauma of grief. Starting with everyday shots taken on the street or subway, her creations morphed into large detailed imaginative tableaus taken from her dreams. Involving much more than just clicking a shutter button, she hand made and painted everything - from the costumes to the sets. In the woodlands around her home, she constructed elaborate scenes akin to a miniature movie set, complete with lighting, assistants and models.

Lin Shih-Yung - EclectixThe Bananarama of Lin Shih-Yung (Shih Yung Lin)

We just love Lin’s bizarre paintings of banana people, placed in everyday scenarios – using chopsticks, pouring tea and sometimes in random playful gymnastic positions. They are wonderfully off-the-wall and truly surreal in every sense of the word. His imagery has a vintage palette, speaking of warm lost days.
