Featured Artist: Mohau Modisakeng
South African Mohau Modisakeng wears many artistic hats – working in sculpture, video, street art, installations, performance and photography. Our favorites are his more surreal and emotive works – where the subject’s face is obscured, some by mask-like objects and others by beautiful dusty clouds. Partially fragmented by smoke or chalk they imply a spiritual presence, ambiguity of existence and/or the disintegration of matter.
Featured Artist: Oscar Camilo de las Flores
Eclectix had the opportunity to view Oscar’s amazing work awhile ago at the ArtPad fair and we were amazed by their gigantic scale and never ending complex detail. Large and intense renderings suggest woven tapestries of human-kind in turmoil. A boiling pot of peopled stew, they are narratives which pulse and throb within never ending power struggles between the good, the bad and the ugly.
Featured Artist: Valentin Podpomogov
Valentin Podpomogov is an Armenian painter we’ve (gratefully) just discovered – a master of symbolism, surrealism and social commentary.

Street Art: Isaac Cordal
Isaac Cordal’s cement tribes are little human sculptures fashioned of cement and then carefully placed in various locations and environments throughout the streets of Europe and beyond. His figures offer poignant commentary on global warming (above), political collapse, corruption and ineptitude, environmental fragility and the isolated loneliness of the human condition.
