José Parlá: Broken Language – Nowness
by Ken Jenie
Jose Parla’s work brings out the textures and atmosphere of the urban environment on the canvas like no other, the combination of his elongated graffiti combined with textural paint daubs and splashes create images that is reminiscent of the facade of many of the world’s major cities. Recently having an exhibition in London’s Haunch of Venison, Nowness had the opportunity to interview mr. Parla and what we get is this insightful video. In “Broken Languages”, Parla guides the audience through his creative process, explaining site-specific works to how he interprets and references the environments into his work. A good, pretty inspirational piece. Enjoy.
