Surreal art of Alec Huxley
Inspired by monster movies and mutant toys, author’s mixes cityscapes from film noir with sci-fi genres.
Have you ever dreamed a movie you were watching, or a book you were reading before you went to bed? Have you been watching Dirty Harry mixed with Discovery Channel? If yes, then you are ready for a journey into another time period, into a surreal world that puts you in some sort of a dream-state and evokes a astonishment and fascination, that makes the imagination run wild.
Finding his inspiration in Asian monster movies, mutant toys and San Francisco streets Alec Huxley’s subjects are a result of his is love of light and shadow, buildings and space, combining desert landscapes, and various cityscapes with imageries from film noir and sci-fi genres. His mystic astronauts seem to be be suspended between dimensions or speak to one’s consciousness slipping from reality to that of a lucid dream all the while floating through the scenery of San Francisco and viewing these sceneries through the lens of a vintage space helmet.
It’s as if he is living in a completely different world – a world where envy, manipulation, and greed never existed. Not being upset by any kind of critiques; he agrees that they’re merely an opinion and that true beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
The artist takes architecture to a new level – literally, with his mind-bending series of flying houses.
