BRAVE NEW WORLD

BRAVE NEW WORLD

By Bobby Hundreds

Okay so we just left the Futura + Jose Parla show at the legendary Elms Lester Gallery here in London. What can I say? Sometimes pictures can truly speak a thousand words.

If you ask anyone close to me, they’ll tell you that Futura has been one of my favorite artists for years. So I was excited to see him transcend his trademark style, and incorporate movement and different color schemes within his work. Also, the way he’s re-thinking the canvas space.

Aside from his extensive graffiti history, Jose Parla made a mark in 2006 with some highly regarded exhibitions in the States, and his art is continuing to solidify its character.

Different people appreciate Parla’s work for different reasons, such as the colors or the ideology behind re-appropriating urban landscapes within a gallery space, but for me personally, it’s all about the texture and layers. The process. So I’ve tried to give you a closer look at some of the pieces, since many of you on your computers are losing out on that third-dimension, which is absolutely crucial to understanding the art of Jose Parla.

Sometimes, when I have such desire in my heart, I am reminded of how much it sucks to not have money.
