It’s been a while since I’ve shared an artist with you. I guess that means I haven’t been “wowed” by much lately. However, that changed the moment that I saw Jon Parlangeli’s work. I follow Saatchi on Pinterest in the hopes of learning about new artists. That’s where I saw Jon’s work and it stopped me in my tracks. I instantly repinned the painting I saw (first one below) and clicked through to see more of his work.
These pieces are haunting with the harsh images and the bright colors painted over top. It reminds me of confetti. It’s a very, very cool juxtaposition. He’s a Detroiter too, so he gets mad props and respect from me. Word.
Have a great day and go buy some damn art!
