BAS Atelier is a creative practice co-founded in 2021 by architect duo Luis Ignacio Figallo and Patrisa Pruthi, inspired by the ancient decorative technique of low or “bas” relief.
Born out of a lifelong interest in form, texture, and light, the works are focused around craftsmanship. Each bas-relief is individually designed, carved, and painted by hand. The resulting works are elemental searches into composition, form, and depth, producing abstract landscapes that radiate and flow with the reflection of light.
“In using muted tones throughout the series, I aim to encourage a peaceful response in the viewer, channeling qualities of transience, tranquility, and impermanence.”
