Many thanks to Shayna at paintpenscollective for the nice feature on my work!
Featured Artist ||| Rich Pellegrino (Boston, MA)
When I had first reached out to Rich Pellegrino I did not know he had a painting in the new Wes Anderson film, Grand Budapest Hotel. I was also pleasantly surprised to have scheduled his feature on the release date of the movie. With that being said, we a.) feel very lucky on the timing and b.) which piece of Rich Pellegrino’s work you will fall in love with first is a tough call. His unique style of broad strokes and bright colors are immediately captivating, and the personality of his subjects will further draw in the viewer.
For this feature, we wanted to focus in on some of the other pop art portraits, however, to get the full spectrum of Rich’s work please visit his website and his shop.
