Photos for Philo
My uncle, Philo is an amazing artist specializing in assemblage art and Art Cars. He is currently on his 5th Art Car- which to my knowledge puts him in a very small elite class of artists. The only other Artist I know of that has made that many ArtCars would be David Best. The big difference with Philo is that he uses his cars as daily drivers- taking his art with him everywhere. He does not have a "regular car". His Art Car is his car. And it is beautiful!
Philo also does assemblage art and has recently completed some amazing work. I went to his house this weekend to take photos of his most recent pieces.
There are photos of another assemblage artists work in this post too. Jack Devore is a good friend of Philo and considers him a kind of mentor. Jack is an original old beatnik and has the uncanny ability to make master work by gluing two pieces of trash together. How does he do it?
I dont know how he does it- but obviously he told Philo the secret.
Below is a piece by Philo (i dont have the work's title) check out a small taste of Philo and Jack's work by clicking on the photo below......
