This November AucArt welcomes guest curator, French Israeli and singer-songwriter Petite Meller. In conjunction with her latest single, ‘Dying Out of Love’, Petite welcomes 3 brand new mixed-media artists to the AucArt roster. Spotlighting in Editorial Fashion, all three artists not only have a distinct understanding of colour and figure, but also share a close relationship with the singer. Inspired by the lyrics of ‘Dying Out of Love’, Petite introduces her sale:
“Our love is art and art is just forever my love” – these lyrics I wrote are the essence of my vision on art and its place in our existence or more accurately our post existence. I gathered together what I believe will stay forever.
These artists are masters of colours. There is a genius cosmic play of colors that strikes my mind and sends it to infinity. Their work takes me to what Kant imagined when he spoke about the sublime in the “Critique of the Power of Judgment”. Something that almost breaks your mind with joy when you look at it and helps you feel the existante of the transcontinental sublime.
Eliot, Ella and Rebecca are all close friends that I love to collaborate with. Their creation is so inspiring to me and I hold them close to my heart.
I want to be surrounded by their art everywhere I’d go.
Eliot Lee Hazel
Rebecca Coltori is a mixed-media artist born and raised in Spoleto, Italy in 1995. Her inclination towards visual art began at an early age, when her passion for drawing and painting started to grow. She attended the scenography class at the Art Institute before switching her studies to graphic design. With this combination of backgrounds, she has found the perfect world to express her creativity in the Fashion Industry and was later able to catch the eyes of clients like Sony and Adidas. Her passion for traditional techniques (collage, drawing, painting) mixed with the digital ones, leads her work to something always unique, bold and eye-catching.
Eliot Lee Hazel’s portraiture and conceptual photography is unique and fearless garnering him a well-deserved worldwide following. Originally trained as a Michelin star chef, Hazel’s approach to his work is distinct and stylised with an emphasis on location. Eliot’s portraiture and stylised conceptual photography has achieved a worldwide cult following. Eliot approaches fashion, music and personal projects with a distinct and singular vision, often exploring themes of isolation and detachment. Born in England and raised in Holland, the artist now splits his time between London and LA, Eliot has shot for likeminded brands such as Chapter and Persol, and has collaborated with a range of influential artists including Thom Yorke, Beck, Karen O, Bat For Lashes, Interpol, John Legend and Ariel Pink to name a few.
Ella Uzan’s passion for taking pictures started to bloom rapidly after graduating from Bezalel Academy in Jerusalem where she studied animation for 4 years. Her artwork has been displayed in various galleries around the world and can be seen in different popular fashion magazines as well as in online style sites and inspirational blogs. Ella’s photos endeavour to transmit a particular atmosphere and emotional impact. Ella looks to achieve these qualities through the use of different combinations of lights, colours and via classic manipulation techniques that she has picked up over the years.
