Michael Pellew

Michael Pellew is a Brooklyn based artist who is known for his humorous ruminations on pop culture and celebrity mash-ups. His inspiration comes from speed–metal, Taylor Swift, Chicago Deep House and reality TV stars. Michael’s seemingly simple and succinct drawings use playful line quality and imaginative cultural observations to develop an alternate universe where pop culture is thrown into a blender, giving the viewer random moments that are exuberant, painfully honest, witty and at times, grim.


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. Hip fashion retailer Opening Ceremony carries Michael’s greeting cards in Manhattan and Los Angeles and his work is in the corporate collections of Citibank, J. Crew, and PAPER Magazine, who has dubbed him their “favorite artist.
