Colin Pezzano by DJ Dohar

Colin Pezzano graduated from the University of the Arts in 2014 with a BFA in Crafts. He maintains and relies heavily on craft practices mixed with humor and pathos to define his work. In the spring of 2015 Pezzano had his first solo show, titled Contain You, at Bridgette Mayer Gallery. In 2018, he had his second solo show, Still Life with Dead Game, at the Allen’s Lane Art Center. In 2020, Pezzano worked with the group Past Present Projects on a store-front window installation titled We’ve Never Met. He has also participated in group shows and juried exhibitions, attended residencies in the USA and Sweden, and is a Windgate Fellow. Pezzano maintains his practice in South Philadelphia in his basement studio.Pezzano’s work is defined by craft processes. By carving and shaping material he is able to connect actions and memories to the traditions of his predecessors and contribute to the collective knowledge of making. Since achieving his BFA, Pezzano has worked and taught in many different types of spaces including universities, makers spaces, personal studios, and commercial shops.
