+ ABOUT MICHAEL PELLEW +
Pellew's drawings and sculptures are humorous ruminations on pop culture. His playful line quality and imaginative cultural observations are simple and succinct. With one pass of his hand he can depict joy, humor and clever character. His subject matter is NYC trains and buses, fashion design, “punk funk freaks from the East Village and around the Tri-State area”, and pop portraits of favorite singers and performers. His characters capture a direct sense of style and spontaneity. Pellew’s studio practice is based out of LAND Gallery, a program for artists with dual diagnosis (developmental disabilities and mental illness).
