Artist: Joel Daniel Phillips
Joel Daniel Phillips is an American artist whose work focuses on the tenets of classical draftsmanship employed in monumental formats. Inspired by the depth and breadth of human experience, he strives to tell the personal and societal histories etched in the faces of those around him. Through the tip of his pencil, the artist seeks to find moments where our projected senses of self are transparent, allowing deeper, more truthful emotions to become visible.

Destination: Ourika Valley, Morocco

Morocco is an ideal destination for an adventurous road trip. From the coastline, to the Atlas Mountains, the Sahara dessert and everything in between. The sceneries along the way will prove to be breath taking. Joel’s road trip will be taking him from the Ourika Valley to Mhamid, Tiznit, Essaouria and ending the trip in Marrakech. A long trip, but surely one to never forget. 

Along the way, Joel will visit Aït-Ben-Haddou, a UNESCO World Heritage site which is a beautiful example of traditional southern Moroccan architecture, that back in the day served as the “door to the dessert”.  From here on out Joel will also spend two nights in the dessert, experiencing the authentic Berber lifestyle, and sleeping under the stars.

The Jaunt is combining the two best things in life: art and travel. We are sending contemporary artists all over the world for inspiration and new impressions. Because nothing is more inspiring than stepping out of your comfort zone.

You can take part in the inspiration process of the artist, and pre-order a print from one of our upcoming trips. Stay up to date with the artists on their travels through our blog and get a beautiful art work in return, at a very affordable price.
