Collection: "Writer's Breakthrough" by Jean-Luc Pedanou solo exhibit

KALEID Gallery is proud to present:

“Writer’s Breakthrough” by Jean-Luc Pedanou

I first started painting exclusively for myself in an effort to work through writer’s block while working on a graphic novel. I had read somewhere that engaging in a different artistic endeavor could spur on creativity for writers. Unfortunately that idea failed but only from a literary standpoint but succeeded for me artistically by compelling me to pursue expression through painting and eventually mixed media. I had always wanted to paint and finally gave myself license to try unconditionally.

Once I started sharing my work, I was compelled by the diverse reactions I was receiving. I now understand that I love evoking emotion, feeling and imagination from viewers. From the start my feelings were expressed in cascades of colors, light and movement. Eventually however, I felt a need to add more dimension and texture to my work. I love the visceral reaction that textures and materials elicit in people.I create art that feels both organic and industrial, symmetrical and yet fluid, simultaneously raw and sophisticated.

Welcome to Art that Moves You to Feel and Touch.
