Mel Kadel uses the technique called “drawing with an eyelash” on her floral, dropped and striped patterns and the peculiar characters of her images. She works using ancient papers, tiny pens, cotton swabs and glue. Grew up in Pennsylvania suburbs and graduated from Moore College of Art & Design in 1997, moved to NYC for a couple of years and ended in Los Angeles, where she has living and working for over a decade. Kadel has created a visual narrative that communicates the idea we are all part of a system whether recognized or not.
