Terminal B

October 30, 2015 - May 30, 2016

Philadelphia artist Michael Biello is known for his multidisciplinary approach to the visual arts. Working both 2- and 3-dimensionally, Biello eloquently combines painting and collage with ceramics and found objects. He is known for creating functional chandeliers, lighted sculptural objects, and non-illuminated vertically suspended compositions.

The common thread between them is Biello’s technique where he assembles and composes each piece to achieve a visual balance. Whether it is a chandelier or decorative object, Biello uses a combination of found and handmade forms that he describes as “old and new -- past and present.” By “marrying past with present,” he is creating something new, something of himself.

Michael Biello has exhibited his work in numerous venues around the world including the American Crafts Museum, New York, and the World Crafts Council, Vienna. His work is in private collections and can be seen locally at his studio/showroom located in Old City, Philadelphia. 

Biello’s work is represented by Wexler Gallery, Philadelphia.
