Philip Mix was born in 1955 and is originally from Edmonton. Philip's vocation as an artist was a certainty since childhood when he began painting in oils at age eleven. His passion led him to the Alberta College of Art from which he graduated in 1979. Without breaking stride he had his first one man show the following year.
Philip has traveled extensively throughout Europe to breath in the aura of the Masters. He has shown in various galleries abroad from Santa Cruz to London, Israel, and Cyprus. His paintings have been favorably compared to those of the Group of Seven. Though the influence of these and other 20th century artists is apparent, his style is always a distinct voice.
In his recent work of abstract landscapes, he uses to intriguing effect a multifarious blend of collage like layering and colors reminiscent of stained glass windows.
His delight with color and fascination with movement are the themes that resonate throughout the whole of his work.
Philip currently resides in Chemanius, BC.
