Jose Parla

José Parlá (born 1973) started painting in the early 1980s, exhibiting his works in the streets of Miami. The Brooklyn based artist has been exhibiting internationally since 2000. Parlá is a polyglot of stories and memories who engages in the sub-cultures and values of urban life, and shares the natural world of the elsewhere community he observes and documents by creating a body of work that is at once universal, engaging, glorious, and mind-expanding to see.
