About the Artist
San Jose-based artist Kyle Pellet (b. 1982) creates small scale drawings to incubate narratives of intimacy, discomfort, and discovery. Inspired by pop-culture, multimedia ephemera, and fine art, Kyle's paintings express liquid narratives by way of rhythmic arrangements in color, harmony, texture, value, shape, form, and frequency. Kyle's work is a high contrast playground of mutating perspectives, pulsating and populated with expressive figures who persist on fluid mounds, shards, and clumps of graphic circumstance.
