Cold by Parra

We really like the most recent collaboration by the ever-inspiring publisher and producer of artworks CASE STUDYO, this time with regular collaborator Dutch artist Parra. With the sculpture named ‘Cold’, the Amsterdam-based artist once again translates his unique signature curved post-pop imagery into a beautiful porcelain sculpture. A surreal and hybrid character of a female birdlike creature with hands around the legs looking for warmth. The eye-catching sculpture comes in a screen printed wood box with a signed and numbered certificate of authenticity by the artist, making it another signature high quality addition to the already great catalogue of CASE STUDYO.

Dutch artist Piet Parra is one of the more visible contemporary artists in the Netherlands, widely known for his curved post-Pop imagery, highly saturated colours, vibrant hand-drawn letters and worlds inhabited byhybrid, surreal characters. Celebrated by galleries and championed by an intrinsic underground following from the outset, Parra has quickly become a respected and eclectic artist worldwide. Working across drawing, painting, animation and sculpture, Parra creates an enigmatic and instantly recognisable style that defies easy categorisation. Parra is cofounder of cult apparel label Rockwell Clothing and a member of electronic music group Le Le. Parra Lives and works in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

His work has been published and exhibited worldwide. In the last couple of years his work was on display in Galleria Patricia Armocida, Milan, Jonathan Levine Gallery, New York, HVW8 Gallery, Los Angeles, Protein Gallery, London and the Common Gallery, Tokyo. His work has been published in on- and offline publications like The New York Times, Complex Magazine and Hypebeast and one finds also work of Parra in the collection of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

CASE STUDYO was born out of the creative agency Toykyo Productions. In 2012 they decided that it was time to take the limited edition artworks to the next level and give it dedicated focus. The rich history of Toykyo art-collabs and productions can be found on the website of CASE STUDYO, as the foundation of their new venture. Since the start the collaborations have resulted into fine art works, furniture or other functional objects.

With our projects we strive to push new boundaries of art a bit further and grab the art of today and share it through the limited series.
