December 2016 #191
Juxtapoz ends the 2016 calendar year with an artist in the midst of a significant evolution: Amsterdam-based Parra is getting looser. And more experimental. And making more sculpture work. Long associated with a unique hybrid of both skate and design-culture mixed with humor, we sat down with the Dutchman on the eve of his new solo show, "No Work Today," and talk about his long, extended weekend that he says has been going on for years. Except, you know, he's made a brand and significant art career out of it.
