Featured Artist: Rebecca Szeto
Recycling old paintbrushes into iconic portraiture, Rebecca Szeto has found a wonderful niche for her artworks. After all, don’t we all hate throwing away our well loved paintbrushes? And they all end up with their own character and personality, just like people. I love the crude and sometimes crusty buildup on the garments where the paint has dried up, time after time.
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.
Painter CT Nelson creates fantastic surreal worlds, partly abstracted and partly illustrative – with his more recent works leaning towards less definitive imagery. Channeling visions of science fiction, historical events, trippy hallucinations and vortex swirling motions of weather patterns – his paintings mesmerize and pull you in.
Fierce Fashion: Zac Posen
Fashion designer Zac Posen stepped it up a quite few notches with his incredible Cinderella ball gown. He created it for Claire Danes to wear to the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala 2016, last night.
We Get Our Foto Fix: Marco Castelli
Marco Castelli is a fine art photographer living in Florence, Italy. His otherworldly studies of the growths in petri dishes are like little planets floating against a starry sky. Aptly titled – “A Micro Odyssey” – they are gorgeous and enchanting galaxies in black and white.
AJ Frena’s art is a wild kingdom of animals and humanity, a tumultuous and invigorating realm. Detailed and concisely rendered in both tooth and nail, his imagery is composed with a keen sense of design, empathy and admiration of the animal in us all.
