works by Parra
Opening was on Sat, April 7th, 2007 at the HVW8 Gallery, L.A.
30-year-old Dutch illustrator and designer Parra has decorated the Amsterdam underground with his playful, bizarre graphics that span a broad base of themes, from introspective to audacious and bawdy. The mostly self-taught artist seems to channel a Vintage form with curves, yet with a decidedly modern, post-pop approach. His vibrant images, which feature a distinctive, hand-drawn feel, can be seen printed on paper in various exhibitions around the globe, on a flyer for a club near you, on the sleeve of a record, on billboards and silkscreened on tees and sweaters. Parra is represented by the London based agency Big Active (www.bigactive.com) and is co owner of the new wave clothing label Rockwell (www.rockwellclothing.com)
