A Glimpse Inside

Every artist approaches their work from a completely unique perspective. We get to enjoy the final results of their ideas as viewers, but we often don't know how they got from point A to point B. At times, this can actually add to the mystery of a great piece of art. On the other hand, sometimes we want to know more.

This video features Pele artist, Carmon Colangelo, chatting about our collaborative project and the exhibit at Bruno David Gallery. It's the perfect chance get a glimpse into the thought process and concepts that he explores in his work. The Glocal Diptychs series is made up of nine monoprints...check out our online gallery to see them all!

Collaborations: Works from Pele Prints

Collaboration is at the heart of everything we do at Pele Prints. As a fine art printshop, we invite artists to work with us at the studio to create limited edition prints and original works of art. Each project is a new adventure in printing. In the end, it’s the partnership between artist and printer that allows for some amazing possibilities and unique discoveries.

Collaborations: Works from Pele Prints is up at Mad Art Gallery in St. Louis through the end of April. If you won't have a chance to see it in person, there are a few images below from the show. And you can always take a look at the prints in our gallery on the Pele website. Enjoy!
