Erik Parker
New Breed Bay, 202172-color silkscreen38 x 54 in.

Erik Parker (b. 1968, Stuttgart, Germany) currently lives and works in New York. Parker attended the University of Texas at Austin before receiving a Master of Fine Arts from Purchase College. Parker is known for his precisely painted and organized vision of chaos that exists within his brightly coloured and highly saturated canvases. His work riffs on the traditional genres of portraiture and still-life. Parker draws his inspiration from diverse elements of American subculture – psychedelia, underground comic books, the Chicago Imagists, hip hop and heavy metal, as well as Picasso, Francis Bacon and Roy Lichtenstein. He has exhibited at The Cornerhouse Gallery (Manchester, England), De Appel (Amsterdam), the Modern Art Museum, Fort Worth (Texas), Colette (Paris), Honor Fraser (Los Angeles), and Galleri Faurschou (Copenhagen, Denmark).
