Where form meets function

Jose Parla recently opened his new exhibition “Memory Documents” in Genova, Italy.
“Featuring a stunning array of new large-scale paintings featuring his signature calligraphic style— many featuring built-up layers of peeling paint and wheatpasted ephemera to mimic decaying city walls—the show was a tour de force showcase of the burgeoning young artist’s formidable skills and emerging place in the highbrow art world after a long and steady rise from his days as a graffiti artist in the streets of Miami.” Via Supertouch.
As usual the artist presents an impressive line-up of works. His type of art, is one that you have to experience live, that’s only when you realize how sophisticated the artist works. We also enjoy very much the ceramic pieces in his new show.
Have a look at some more pieces of the “Memory Documents” show after the jump.
