This is a pure passion project, and I sincerely apologize to ELO for any copyright infringement but I do post that their work has entered the public domain. Peep the description on Vimeo for a back story on this baby.

ABOUT Anything But Art: Art was thrust to the forefront of our minds as many of us whiled Spring away in the throes of quarantine. Creatives took to social media as a means of sharing their own impulses and offering a moment's solace to an anxiety-ridden world. Vittoria believes the creative flame originates on a deeper level than the average art-centric interview questions can penetrate. Engaging artists in conversations about anything but art, Vittoria seeks to unearth the intricacies of each individual's artistic foundation.

ABOUT Alexis Kandra: Born in 1991, Alexis grew up with a passion for art-making and the natural world. She studied at Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, and began making paintings inspired by natural history dioramas, psychology, and the unseen elements that connect everything together.

Alexis Kandra's paintings are portals into surreal parallel worlds, with unlikely animal interactions and theatrical settings. The grid acts as another dimension, or unseen structure behind the universe. Each painting tells a story about how complex and beautiful life can be. ( https://www.instagram.com/kandra_art/ )
