Dropped by "Studio Parla" in downtown Brooklyn the other day to check in on the mad calligraphist JOSE PARLA himself & caught a glimpse of some incredible new work-in-progress along with his recent heavyweight piece "Parla Family Tree." Featuring the artist's trademark script, the heavily worked layers are actually stories of Parla's family history written one on top of another to form a sort of coded archive that only the artist himself can decipher. Expect big things this fall when JP teams up with fellow writing legend FUTURA in a group show of fine art at Elms Lesters in London. Stay tuned to Supertouch for sneek peeks as the show draws near...
