Manifacto Amsterdam is a tattoo studio and a gallery, located nearby the Tropenmuseum and the Rijksakademie.
As a gallery we are committed to contemporary art, with a program dedicated to young, emerging international artists. Currently in the process of finding our identity in the cultural landscape of Amsterdam.
We value the bond between art and tattoo, but still, the gallery has its own independent voice. We are looking forward to see you around!

Luke Brown Spectraleyes | Manifacto Amsterdam
The portal to a higher dimension will open at Manifacto Gallery this Summer and the art of Luke Brown Spectraleyes will be our guiding force! A well-known artist in the visionary art world, we feel blessed to have him show his work in our gallery.
Speaking directly to the heart and soul… He draws inspiration from deep meditative states, sacred geometry and entheogen experiences.
His creative expression taps into something bigger than ourselves, it activates the mind and stimulates the creative spirit within us. The embodiment of mystical experiences by means of the colourful symmetries in his work are timeless and magical taking the viewer through an alternative dimension; a dimension beyond time and space, contributing to the expansion of the collective consciousness.
Painting in oils and acrylics, making sculptures, jewellery and he also creates digital paintings – mixing, remixing and utilizing technologies in his explorations of the inner mind. He has exhibited worldwide and alongside Alex Grey, HR Giger, Ernst Fuchs and Robert Venosa. He is a teacher at the Visionary art Academy in Vienna sharing his knowledge and skills with the next generation of visionary artists. And if you go to psychedelic gatherings around the world then you probably came across himself and his art too.
‘I hope that to be somewhat beneficial and comforting to people. And it seems so. Lots of people come to me and say they recognize their own meaningful journeys in my work. That really is an amazing confirmation for me of what it is that I am doing. I think for them it is like an affirmation that what they experienced is tangible and real: not just a trip they had, but something that has meaning and significance. So, the artwork is a way to confirm something that has been really special and transformative for myself and others.’
Let yourself be immersed in the visual aesthetics of psychedelia via the paintings of Luke Brown.
The exhibition will run from the 12th August to the 30th September.
The opening will be on the 12th of August from 18:00.
