about

Founded in 2021, BAS Atelier is a studio practice led by Luis Ignacio Figallo and 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 in the Miami studio.

The works are both ephemeral and grounded – evocative of natural contours, shapes, and forms. Figallo's background in architecture paired with a long-held passion for painting and music permeates the process, composition and rhythm of the bas-reliefs.

inspiration and process

Each piece emerges from a meditative process of observing and recording patterns in nature through series of gestural sketches. The compositions are carved and assembled from reclaimed wood panels, and later hand-painted with crushed limestone pigments.

The finished works are elemental searches into composition, depth, and form, producing abstract landscapes that radiate and flow with the reflection of light.
