New Works by Jose Parla

Over the peeling paint and weathered surfaces hundreds of tags intersect with each other, each fighting to stand out yet all working together to create a more harmonious whole. This ongoing and urban dialogue, the necessary base on which street art or graffiti needs to be, is captured beautifully in the works of Jose Parla.

The artist's ability to document and re-contextualize the collective environment, while adding his own flowing cursive calligraphy has made him a favorite of ours and we're happy to see that he'll be showing soon at Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery in New York. Get a look at a few of Parla's pieces from the upcoming show after the jump.
