TIED UP – MEL KADEL { ARTIST TO WATCH }

Mel Kadel 1

Los Angles based artist Mel Kadel has been on our radar for a while, so its about time we do a post featuring her amazing illustration skills. Using hand stained papers colored with rhythmic circles, colorful coils, and delicate ‘eyelash’ line work, Kadel has been able to create a world that is playful, yet powerful in every instance — her figures seem to be lost in a endless entanglement that is darkly humorous. In her world, each character seems to be breaking away from the worldly constraints of chaos with ease and fluidity.

2014 has been a great year for Mel and her meticulous hand sketches. She’s landed on the cover of Juxtapoz Magazine’s February issue, did the album work for Tegan & Sarah, and just finished her solo show at Merry Karnowsky gallery in LA.

If you wanna get a piece of Mel’s work, be sure to check out her newly released print “Blue Panic”. Its a 1 color silkscreen, hand painted, stained, and dried in the good’ole California sun. Its only an edition of 70, so don’t wait too long… or it will be gone.  Mel Kadel 2 Mel Kadel 3 Mel Kadel 4
