Erik Parker’s Colorful Resistance

I have a massive library of artist books piled towards the sky and I’m always seeking the next artist monograph to add to my book collection so it was a special treat to get Erik Parker: Colorful Resistance in the mail last week.

Erik’s been a friend of Beautiful/Decay for a long time now, first appearing in a feature length interview in Beautiful/Decay Issue: O complete with cover art (Get your copy here). Since then we’ve kept in touch with Erik and followed his work as it continuously evolves, grows, and pushes forward into mind bending and candy coated directions.  Colorful Resistance is the first retrospective look at Erik’s work with over 256 pages and 300 massive images of almost everything Erik has made since the 90′s to feast your eyeballs on. If that’s not enough Erik’s close friend Kaws did a fantastic interview with him at the end of the book where they discuss everything from collecting other young artists artworks to how flowers can look like genitals.

Currently showing at our favorite nearby art gallery/Japanese-maid-themed-cafe/store, Royal T in Culver City, CA, is “I Can’t Feel My Face,” curated by New York artist KAWS. As the website says, “I Can’t Feel My Face shares its title with a painting by KAWS and is a centerpiece of the exhibition, which explores the theme of contemporary portraiture as a vehicle of inherent emotive expression.” The show features work from over 25 artists, including Carol Dunham, Misaki Kawai, Hideaki Kawashima, Ted Mineo, and Takashi Murakami.
