Designs We Love: Gregory Halili’s Skull Shells
As you’re well aware we have a bit of a penchant for skulls in any context… so we thought we would bring this stunning artist to your attention. Born and raised in the Philippines, New Jersey-based artist Gregory Halili is deeply influenced by the wildlife he experienced as a child and 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 – truly incredible craftsmanship! If you happen to be in New York, his pieces will soon be exhibited at the Nancy Hoffman Gallery.
