Known for his precision in his paintings and organized worlds of chaos, captured through bright colored, intensely layered, highly saturated canvases, Erik Parker is an artist that communicates his own take on traditional genres of still-life and portraiture. Drawing inspiration from American subculture, psychedelia, underground comic books, the Chicago imagist, hip hop and heavy metal, Parker commonly depicts neon scenes featuring natural elements like waves, flowers, and distorted faces. The artist has exhibited in New York, Paris, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Los Angeles, Copenhagen, Chicago, in solo exhibitions and group shows across the world. Erik Parker (b. 1968, Stuttgart, Germany) currently lives and works in New York.
