Nike have been on a mission in the past year or more, to bring you the best of the new and old graphic designers and illustrators to combine art and fashion. This is one of my t-shirts, with an illustration by Parra, the project titled ‘Running Man’, Parra has created a colourful image of what i can only presume is a hare (i.e. the story of the hare and turtle). “Based in Amsterdam, Parra is known for his strange birdface characters and paranoid sense of humour. Cat nipples, tits and typography is what gets this Dutchman out of bed in the morning – and of course a refreshing can of the Dam’s finest. Parra is represented by the London based agency Big Active (www.bigactive.com) and is co owner of the new wave clothing label Rockwell (www.rockwellclothing.com)” ( worded by http://www.picturesonwalls.com/Art_Artists.asp?Artist=Parra&Offset=0&PageNo=1#. 2008.) His work is largly based around Typography and sex, not a bad mix if you ask me!
