Jose Parla Exhibit: Miami
Jose Parla’s Cityscapes exhibit on Friday night completely exceeded my expectations, I’ve been a long time fan of Jose’s work, but never had a chance until now to see such a wide range of examples across several different mediums in one place. His work ranged from large-scale tagged murals to smaller watercolor brush strokes– this show boasted his versatility, and from what the guys at Spoonfed said (the gallery representing him), it seemed to be a launch pad towards higher success; most of the show was sold before it even opened. I was lucky enough to grab one of 4 watercolors before they were all gone, a gorgeous addition to my small but quickly growing art collection! Jose was gracious, soft spoken, anti-corporate (declining a Nike shoe deal earlier this year) and a pleasure to support– I can’t wait to see where his talent takes him next.
