B. 1968, Stuttgart, DE. Lives and works in Brooklyn, NY, USA.
Like a visual freestyle, Parker’s work seamlessly combines elements of contemporary culture into a narrative flow of politics, music, internet memes, hallucinatory dreams, conspiracy theories, and the hieroglyphics of various subcultures. Rebellious and youthful and packed with reference material, his works exploit today’s familiar feeling of ocular bombardment through a cacophony of visual sources including advertising and social media. In his employment of overwhelming content, Parker is able to poignantly comment on the human condition — what it means to be human specifically in this time, in this place, and with these politics.
