Parskid in Denver

by Max KauffmanPosted on

Seattle based artist Parskid (HF Vol. 5) recently visited Denver for a show at Indy Ink. The show consisted of a few of his trademark figures, rising from ethereal mists and delicately rendered. His palette, a unique mix of vivid neon and natural earth tones of spraypaint, echoes the mood he crafts.Of note, some newer pieces showed more focus on the environments around his characters,with the figures becoming even more ghostly and slowly fading into the natural world around them. Bluntly Parksid says he is ‘trying to kill them off’. The new work shines, with haunting mountains and forestsof a black metal landscape that though dark, have an immense beauty to them. While in town Parskid also painted a mural in front of local coffee shop Crema- a welcome addition to the neighborhood and rumor is that he’s coming back for another one! Denver will be waiting patiently. If you’re in Denver, Parskid’s show runs till the 6th of October. Indy Ink 84 S Broadway open mon-Sat 11-6. – Max Kauffman
