José Parlá is an artist who assumes several roles in order to create his work; he acts as a historical transcriber and a visual raconteur. As a transcriber, he records his experiences in calligraphic and palimpsestic code. Serving as a collection of textually chronicled memories, the markings appear on backdrops that resemble the distressed surfaces he encounters, the cosmetic results of passed time: city walls marred from layers of paint, old posters and years of neglect. As a storyteller, Parlá presents a leitmotif of an enigmatic narrative, reaching to translate moments that only a visual dialogue can convey.
In the eigth installment of our Curated by Arkitip series, original Parlá artwork graces our 15" MacBook Pro Sleeve and Convertible Book Jacket for iPad, both of which feature premium pebbled leather construction, as well as our Slider Case for iPhone 4.
