Luke Mansini | RELIK
Luke Mansini is a multifaceted artist who's works can only be described as breath taking. Working under his design name Relik Designs, Luke works with his hands, shunning mass production. His objects reflect the chaotic beauty of his surroundings. Using raw materials such as concrete, sand and paint to create intriguing, tactile pieces. Luke's design philosophy, if you will is to make objects that enhance it's owners's experience, either by standing alone as a distinct sculpture or being utilized to house soil, water and plant life.
Ikebana is the Japanese art of flora arrangement. Ikebana is a disciplined practice that harmonizes nature with humanity. Each arrangement is constructed using living branches, grasses, leaves and flowers placed in a carefully thought out manner. Lines, colours and shapes come together to play an important role in creating Ikebana. Luke Mansini's foray into Ikebana works incredibly well with his raw, natural aesthetic. Ikebana is considered an art in the same way that a painting and a sculpture are.
