Mikel Parra 

Mikel Parra, a Mexican artist born in Morelia, Michoacán, in 2002, establishes his home and creative workshop in the same city where he was born. His work focuses on the exploration of the contemporary human being, using the body as a means to represent the intimacy of intrapersonal thoughts in society. Mikel invites you to challenge the perception of the environment and immerse yourself in the intimate sphere of the human psyche.

 

With a prominent presence in the international art scene, Mikel Parra has participated in group exhibitions in various countries, including Italy, Spain, the United States and Mexico. His participation covers a wide range of projects, from auctions and interviews to collaborations in magazines, covers, television programs, contests and foundations, establishing himself as an icon among the youth artistic community.

 

Through his works, Mikel Parra openly shares his feelings, thoughts, criticisms and concerns about the world around him. His artistic expression, characterized by the corporal representation of human beings, expressive colors and vibrant or subtle tones, offers a window to his constant reflection and criticism on the reality that surrounds him.
