New York-based artist Erik Parker paints meticulously curated worlds of chaos within his brightly colored, highly saturated canvases. The artist obsessively paints layer upon layer of amorphous shapes, globules and drops pushing each composition to the optical extreme. Parker’s biomorphic subjects not only reference the hallucinogenic psychedelia of American culture in the 1960s, but also historical and contemporary sociopolitical issues. Informed by a variety of sub-cultural themes, including music, graffiti and illustration, Parker offers a profound visual experience beyond his intensely layered forms of text and imagery. Following shows all over the world, the New York artist brings his talents to Paris for a special exhibition at colette, which launched today. A view into the event is captured below.
