For many years I made sketches of people in the transit system. Chris Pelletiere is a painter, collage artist, illustrator and cartoonist.

Artists Statement:
"I am a painter, illustrator and cartoonist. City life has always played a significant role in my work. Recently I did a series of collages, based on the theme of transit, exhibited at the New York Transit Museum. The series started when I began to sketch daily commuters in New York’s Penn Station. I incorporated a variety of media: cut newspaper and colored tissue, charcoal drawing, and painting with gouache. The resulting work reflects my interpretation of individuals and crowds moving through the public transit system. Currently I am creating a new series of collages that depict a variety of above-ground urban scenes.”
