Irma Sanchez's Phoenix Rising
Medium: Mixed media illustration on Pantone paper
I created this because Phoenix is a lot about the bird: Growth, Rebirth, Growth. It takes a special type of individual to live in the desert, and Love has a lotto do with rebirth, so ... this is my way to honor Phoenix.
The countdown to Best of Phoenix begins! Last year, we profiled 100 Creatives who made a mark on the local arts scene. This year, we'll have 100 creative representations of Phoenix. No scope or requirement on medium or size -- we'll include photography, painting, sculpture, video, installation, literary, and more. What do you see when you Imagine PHX?
Imagine PHX, so far:
100: Steven Revering's Westward Ho
99: Jon Ashcroft's Suspended in Geography
98: William LeGoullon's Table
97. Jason Hill's Phoenix Financial Center
95: Allison Elliott's Walls of Downtown Phoenix
94. Fausto Fernandez's Grid City
