The Absolutely Insane World of Italian Artist Claudio Parentela!

Can an artist be both an outsider artist and a pop artist? I’m not sure. But Italian Artist Claudio Parentela‘s work certainly is a powerful argument that its possible! His website, full of mind blowing color and vaguely-nauseating movement shows his outsider-like, insane pop aesthetic just as much as his artwork. He’s a man who’s not afraid to be seen or heard. He is an avid art blogger –having no less than 10 art blogs himself — and very active in the European art community.  Not only is he a shameless self promoter (as all artist should be) he interviews other artists and seems to tirelessly crusades for art everywhere. He reminds me of a modern day Warhol.

Parentela’s artwork is part genius and part horror show.  As I scrolled through his gallery I found myself in a sort of trance.  The juxtaposition, the push and pull of beauty and ugly was rather compelling. Even more,  Parentela has hundreds of works on display at this website.  It was humbling to see so much production.
