Alina Chau

Alina Chau has a light, delicate and whimsical touch, which hearkens us back to  early Sixties poster art – illustrations touched by magic and hope. Youthful innocence and fairy tale kingdoms float softly through her watercolors, often embellished with decorative patterns. There is a unique freedom and positivity to her images, gestural looseness and a contagious childlike love of life. She has an upcoming solo show Voyage, in the Elmwood district of Berkeley, featuring her travel and landscape inspired works.

Eclectix - Gina Martynova

Featured Artist: Gina Martynova

Big hair art always commands our attention for some reason, maybe it’s the Dolly Parton in us. Gina Martynova has a beautifully fun series, titled Of Folklore & Fashion Tales, full of portraits of pretty women with bountiful hair-dos. Piled high in round mounds of decorated goodness – the hair is composed of delicate Asian inspired floral patterns and graphic ribbons.
