Courtenay gallery featuring exhibit by spirited Seattle artist

A downtown Courtenay gallery hosting Canadian and International urban contemporary artists will feature one of Seattle’s most spirited young artists, Parskid.

For his first solo show in Canada, Parskid has created a new series called I’ll See You On The Other Side.

Parskid explores a haunting, mesmerizing world based upon mythology, folklore, the cycle of life, and the bounds of the imagination. Grounded in nature and myth, Parskid’s iconic characters take the viewer on a journey through ethereal and otherworldly landscapes.

From the brightly colored neon to lush earth tones, Parskid’s unique

execution of spray enamel, and custom stencils bring life to forests,

animals, and the environment as they intertwine with spirits, mystical energies and cloaked characters to create compositions that are uniquely Parskid.

Parskid has been involved in the Seattle underground art scene for over a decade. His work has been exhibited extensively throughout the U.S., including L.A. and NYC, and also abroad in Japan, France, Australia, Taiwan, Spain, and the U.K.

His work has been published in the following magazines: Hi Fructose, King Brown, Art Prostitute, Cool’eh, Novum, Beautiful/Decay, Day in the Lyfe, Belio and Dirty Soup; as well as published books HI-Fructose Vol. 2, Dot Dot Dash, Canceled Flight, War of Monstars, Pictoplasma 2 and Monstaah!

Visit www.parskid.com for more of his work.

A very limited run of exclusive T-shirts from Philadelphia-based print

company Harpoon Market with one of Parskid’s custom images will be available at the opening reception Thursday, Dec. 8 from 7 to 10 p.m. at the wallfarmers dot ca gallery at unit 1-345 Sixth St. in Courtenay.
