Dutch artist Parra (1976) is best known for his surreal bird-like characters and distinctive use of saturated colours. His early work explored vibrant hand-drawn letters and humor, in recent years, his work has evolved into gorgeously layered abstract interpretations of his core figures.
Celebrated by galleries and championed by a devout underground following, Parra has become a respected and multimedia artist, through solo exhibitions spanning Asia, the United States, and Europe. Working across large scale public sculpture, painting, drawing and textile work, Parra creates an enigmatic and instantly recognisable style that defies easy categorisation. His work is in the public collection of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
Parra is co-founder of cult apparel label ByParra and a member of music group Le Le and MICH. Parra Lives and works in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
