BROTHER DOLOMITE – NEW WORK BY EKO

May 5, 2013
Art-el Gallery are proud to present revered artist Eko, and to unveil his latest retrospective work, the eagerly anticipated ‘Brother Dolomite’ collection.Eko’s newest and original range of mixed media artwork features canvas boards and papers as well as a fanzine and exclusive exhibition screen print.

‘The ‘Brother Dolomite’ collection affords viewers an almost long-lost insight into yesteryear’s pastoral psychedelia movement. Whilst reanimating this civil yet corroded and largely undiscovered artistic spate, Eko’s renderings create a micro cosmos of imagery that’s brilliantly bound by the ethereality of a seemingly prodigal yet precious past.
