In art, eclectic refers to a person or style that borrows freely and obviously from other contemporary and influential sources. It implies that the person or the style is not exclusive or selective in opinion or taste.

Eclecticism is a conceptual approach that does not hold rigidly to a single paradigm or set of assumptions, but instead draws upon multiple theories, styles, or ideas to gain complementary insights into a subject, or applies different theories in particular cases. | Contact Us | List Your Art | List Your Art Gallery | Site Map
