Sandy and Steve Pell are on a mission to paint the world with their vibrant murals — and you don’t need your passport to see their amazing art work because 20 of their pieces are here in Vancouver.
Known as Pellvetica, the two talented mural artists have created a style that’s captivated people, businesses, and the design world across the globe with how they transform blank spaces into a visual escape.
Since deciding to collaborate about five years ago, Pellvetica has worked with a range of companies, including Google, Boeing, Free People, Royal Canadian Mint, and the City of Vancouver, to name a few.
Pellvetica has since won accolades at the SHINE Annual IDIBC Awards of Excellence by the Interior Designers Institute of BC, the Top 10 of the World’s Coolest Offices, and the Top 10 Coolest offices in Canada.
The artists were also selected by Lürzer’s Archive as two of the Top 200 Best Illustrators Worldwide, a resource for advertising professionals, two years ago.
