Wink World opens with a walking/standing tour of psychedelic artist Alex Aliume’s 3D paintings. Wear the complementary 3D glasses for this display, as Aliume achieves his fluid, textured work by hand.

“For some of these strokes, Alex uses a brush with one feather,” Wink says. “I could never have the patience to work that way. He is a genius.”

That’s Aliume’s art out front, as the Wink World brand, with one hand held up and another rebelliously showing its middle finger. One eye is open to the world, one closed and peering internally. “Wink” is forever constant in Wink’s world, and he’s joked that if it wasn’t his legal name, he might change it to refer to his mischievous quality.
