Dutch artist Parra gets set to open up his latest exhibition Saturday, April 4th at HVW8 Art + Design Gallery in Los Angeles. The show will feature new original works exclusive to the exhibition entitled “Is That A Gun My Friend?” which will run through May 9th, 2009.
“32-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 channels vintage forms, yet with a decidedly modern, post-pop approach and a distinctive, hand-drawn feel. His vibrant images and typography can be seen on prints in various exhibitions around the globe, on a flyer for a club near you, on the sleeve of a record, or on limited-edition tees and sweaters.”
