Celene Petrulak

Artist Pittsburgh, PA

A Pittsburgh based artist, Celene’s work creates a deep emotional state of profound melancholic longing for an absent someone or something.  Where proportions are exaggerated and animals interact in solemn ways.  Inanimate objects are interwoven with the living to create a surrealist wonderland.

Celene has shown her pastels and paintings in numerous galleries on the west coast including the Hive Gallery, La Luz de Jesus Gallery, Subtext Gallery, Gallery Nucleus, the Japanese American National Museum and also internationally at The Dream Factory
