Carmichael gallery's post about Mel Kadel reminded me that I should get something from this artist in the future. I like the patterns/quilts she uses and more recently the flowers. For some reason, i find her composition very appealing. Does anyone own her stuff? I don't know much about her.
Mel uses ink pens, but also it's the old paper, with coffee stains and unique marking that she uses that make her pieces really beautiful.
I've recently opened up an online art gallery / store called ivoteforart.com . I don't want to come accross as a spammer here, but thought you guys might be interested to know that I'm selling a couple of her prints here - The first two pics that you've listed sleepboy.
I've gotten to know Mel a little (over email) and she's lovely ... I'm so glad that she's doing so well - didn't know that she's in the latest Juxtapoz though. That's great.
