Michael J. Pellew Jr.  Michael Pellew’s unique and affable drawings and sculptures are pop- ruminations full of humor and simplicity. Michael’s playful line quality and imaginative cultural observations are simple and amazingly succinct. With one pass of his hand he can depict joy, humor and clever character. His subject matter consists of 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 encapsulate a direct sense of style andspontaneity and are celebrated by many collectors. Michael’s cards have been carried by Opening Ceremony in Manhattan and Los Angeles. Other corporate collections include Citi Bank, JCrew and PAPER Magazine.
