Parra

Parra (Pieter Janssen) was born in 1976 in The Netherlands and is currently based in Amsterdam. The largely self-taught artist began his career drawing flyers and posters for music venues in Amsterdam in the 1990s. In 2012, he was commissioned by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMoMA) to create WeirdedOut, a 60-foot indoor mural, currently part of their permanent collection. His signature hand-drawn approach to illustration and design led to collaborations with brands such as NIKE, Pendleton and Case Studyo. Parra’s paintings, drawings and sculptures have been exhibited in galleries across Europe, Japan and North America. Parra also co-founded the apparel label Rockwell by Parra and is a member of the electronic music group Le Le.
