The Art of Joseph Parra

by JL SchnabelPosted on

Baltimore based artist Joseph Parra creates life-size portraits, employing a rigorous process of blending printmaking, digital printing, drawing and painting before disfiguring the faces of his subjects. This violence creates an unsettling energy, exploring the perilous realm of identity within the looming space of the large works. As modern portraiture, the work succeeds in confronting the viewer and asking them to connect to the marred, burned and at times, abstracted faces of a lost generation. Take a peek at more of the work below.
