Contemporary artist Jose Parla spent his summer working on two large-scale murals for The Concord Project based in Toronto. The New York-based painter provides us with insights on how he approaches painting in the video produced by Sarah Keenlyside. He shares the processes and how he’s sustained himself as an artist over the years. With his abstract approach resembling well thought out graffiti and street art, Jose Parla describes himself as a “human typewriter” due to the rhythm he has developed over the years. These two pieces of art took almost a year to complete, originating from his own studio in Brooklyn before being transported over to Toronto.
