Juxtapoz x Superflat: Parra
Today, we take a look at works by Amsterdam-based artist, designer, fashion designer, sculpturist and all around super-talent Parra, who is taking part in "Juxtapoz x Superflat." Parra will be showcasing a brand new sculpture as part of the show, which runs August 4—7, 2016 at Pivot Art & Culture in Seattle.
Since we last had Parra on the cover of Juxtapoz back in 2008, his work has taken on new languages, but clearly still the signature and iconic style that has made him an international beloved artist. With sculpture works now part of the equation, as well as these new looser style paintings that evoke a classic fine art style, Parra has become not only one of the most exciting artists we cover, but one that seems to be transforming right before our eyes. Today, we grabbed a series of works he has been showing throughout his last two solo shows, and are all exquisitely beautiful.
Artists selected to appear in the show by Murakami include: Chiho Aoshima, Urs Fischer, Kim Jung Gi, Kazunori Hamana, James Jean, JH Kagaku, Friedrich Kunath, Takashi Murakami, Kazumi Nakamura, Otani Workshop, Mark Ryden, David Shrigley, Katsuya Terada, a selection from Toilet Paper Magazine, Yuji Ueda, Yuji Ueno, He Xiang Yu, and Zoer & Velvet. Artists selected by Pricco include Trenton Doyle Hancock, Todd James, Austin Lee, Rebecca Morgan, Elisabeth Higgins O’Connor, Paco Pomet, Parra, Christian Rex van Minnen. Erin M. Riley, Devin Troy Strother, Sage Vaughn, and Ben Venom.
