If you are finding yourself in New York City the next few months the Gregory Halili exhibit is a must see. Born and raised in the Philippines, New Jersey-based artist Gregory Halili is deeply influenced by his environment and wildlife he experienced as a child. His latest series of work involves a fusion of the human form with the natural world in these amazing bas-relief shell skulls.
Halili carves and then paints with oil on raw, gold-lip and black-lip mother of pearl found in shells collected from the Philippines. Halili is currently displaying his work at the Nancy Hoffman Gallery in NYC.
