New York based German artist Erik Parker turned to eye-popping color and dizzying details in his recent paintings. Seemingly in constant motion, his paintings are composed of a myriad of tiny dots, paisleys, teardrops, squiggles, and drips, in a rainbow of bright colors. Parker creates bold, graphic compositions that riff on the traditional genres of portraiture and still-life. His visionary paintings draw their inspiration from diverse elements of American subculture—psychedelia, underground comic books, the Chicago Imagists, hip hop and heavy metal— as well as Picasso,  Francis Bacon and Roy Lichtenstein.
