Artist: Erik Parker

Here's some bold work by German Erik Parker. It reminds me of the animation of Ren & Stimpy with the psychedelia of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Super stimulating!

The NY TIMES' art columnist describes it well:
“Working under the influence of acid rock posters, underground comics, Mad magazine, Ed (Big Daddy) Roth, Giuseppe Arcimboldo and Peter Saul, Mr. Parker has created a series of zany, neon-bright, imaginary portraits: goggle-eyed heads that are disintegrating into spaghetti-like strands and countless little blobs. Viewing them is like seeing into a mirror through the eyes of a furiously hallucinating drug fiend.”
