Jose Parla

Born in Miami into a family of Cuban exiles, José Parlá moved to Puerto Rico at a very early age before returning to Miami again when he was nine. He currently lives and works in New York.

Spontaneous and animated, Parlá's paintings radiate his personality. He became one of Miami's kings in the graffiti world known for his signature styles, mural pieces, and replications of wall surfaces that turn writing into elegant abstract calligraphy.
