Parra

Kind Regrets

September 29 - November 11, 2012
Parra is known to lovers of his work for the themes and motifs which have become unmistakable and distinctive trademarks of his style. Curved 2 dimensional modern post – pop  images, highly saturated colors, vibrant typographic hand-drawn letters and worlds inhabited by hybrid, bizarre, surreal characters. Men with bird heads, fleshy and voluptuous women with round sensual bodies, mixed with texts and themes that span from sarcastic and introspective to ironic and bold, all the way to nonsensical. Esteemed and popular in the independent scene in the beginning, he quickly became a recognized, creative, and eclectic artist worldwide. Established brands have recruited Parra to customize limited edition products, his hands have illustrated ad campaigns and his works have been shown in various solo exhibitions around the globe. His last show was in the SFMOMA, his first in a U.S. museum.
