Ray Caesar, An  Eclectix Artist Interview

Ray Caesar creates gorgeously haunting combinations of the rococo, the romantic and contemporary surreal imagery, with bits of more modern fashions and sexual fetish. His artistic influences reference the French rococo, variations on the theme of the fête champêtre (which featured figures in ball dress or masquerade costumes disporting themselves amorously in parkland settings), Antoine Watteau, François Boucher, Dali and the Dutch painters.

Jeff P, An Eclectix Artist Interview

Jeff has a mastery of classic naturalist rendering, science based illustrations which also play off abstract shapes colors and objects. Coined “psychedelic naturalism” – think Audubon meets Timothy Leary. Multitudes of graceful snakes coil and intertwine within various environs, graceful and lovingly detailed in their realism.

Eclectix interview - Andrea Kowch

Andrea Kowch, An Eclectix Artist Interview

There is a beautiful and surreal haunting quality to Andrea’s resplendent imagery, with an overall ambiance of frozen moments in time. Magical female personas share sisterly relationships confronting the viewer, and dominating stark landscapes. Feasts are prepared from farmed abundance while ominous birds flock and insects alight. Clouds of wild hair fly askew in a contrary wind and fields of wheat bow under pressures.


Mark Garro, An Eclectix Artist Interview


Mark Garro’s fantastic work is a mystical trip into worlds within worlds, luminous narrative paintings of wonder and beauty. Swirling with mythic symbolism, religious icons and the beauty of our natural environment – they tackle grandiose themes set in a surreal cosmos. His detailed works are large multilayered extravaganzas, overflowing with the push and pull between humanity and its own destruction and the struggles within our individual fragile psyches.

New Zealand artist Liam Barr creates fantastical portrait narratives which spark questions and hook us with surreal, old world mystery.

Junkyard Sam, An Eclectix Artist Interview

Junkyard Sam creates delightful worlds, images of  frolicking, happy light-hearted creatures with carrot noses and fairy tale dreams. Occasional robots may menace or engage the viewer with their Tin Man charm and golden bluffs tower over peaceful river valleys with strolling “Quaggles” (Sam’s duck characters).
