Leif Parsons @ Wild Project Gallery
After years of kicking around the New York scene, Leif Parsons will be enjoying his first solo show this February. The artist’s personal work tends to stray towards the surreal, using unusual perspectives, unexpected line drawings, and a bold use of color. He pushes the viewer to contemplate the intention behind each piece, creating commissioned illustrations for such regarded publications as The New York Times. These images have more obvious social implications, but are no less thought-provoking. We’re hoping that when the show opens on February 20th, at the Wild Project gallery in New York’s East Village, the work he’s selected feature a mix of both.
