Erik Parker: "Double Down" @ Nanzuka, Tokyo
One of our favorite painters working today, NYC-based Erik Parker toes the line between psychedelic and comic book art, with an original and unique style with vibrant colors and almost collage-like composition. His latest body of work, "Double Down," is now on display at Nanzuka in Tokyo through July 9, 2016. Parker has been in the magazine a few times in the past few years, as well as doing a mural with Juxtapoz and Converse on the side of Pilgrim Surf + Supply in Brooklyn last year.
The exhibition features a selection of approximately 10 works including distorted new canvas piece that combine two circular forms reminiscent of scenes viewed through binoculars, and painting on pyramid-shaped canvas.
