/ Travel Like An Artist: Phillip Low in Mexico /
With an expert eye for colour, geometry and form, Phillip Low creates amazing sculpted pieces using carefully faceted acrylic.
Based out of Canada (where he recently moved from New York), Phillip has been busy touring Mexico. He's back with some fabulous photos and travel notes, gleaned along the way.
"I love this view from my roof terrace. It's such a collage of volumes and textures – it captures the feel of the neighbourhood I stayed in."
"Reforma, a grand avenue running through the heart of the city – and pink taxis!"
"A moment in a Luis Barragán house. You can see his artistry at work: colour, form and light." [Luis (1902-1988) is a legendary Mexican architect and engineer.]
"The metro was fascinating. Efficient and beautiful in its own way. The stone that's used everywhere is so gorgeous. It’s called 'Mármol de Tepeji'.
Amazing people watching."
"Rufino Tamayo Museum – brilliant. There is so much architecture for us Brutalist fans here. This was a highlight and speaks Mexican to its heritage somehow..."
