About the event
From Wrestlers to Rock and Roll, Kim Parrent is a Canadian Artist born in Calgary, Alberta and has lived in Majorca - Spain, Houston - Texas and has a studio in Calgary, Canada.
Her works have been featured in numerous solo exhibitions across the United States, the UK and across Canada, including graphic work in the National Music Center.
Kims mediums include oils, Swarovski crystals, photography, found images, mixed media and metallics in her painting. Her subjects include portraits, social commentary, humor, art history, optical illusion, and abstraction with a pop culture influence. Capturing historical elements with a Contemporary Art flair.
The artist strikes a balance between forms that are created and ones that are influenced by culture and photography. Kims focus is the concept of a culture vulture. Art and music are an integral inspiration for over three decades of her work , with a long obsession with rock and roll and the spectacles of Mexican Luchadors and modern pro – wrestling entertainment.
The Luchador /Luchadora series of paintings has been on going since 2018, the paintings were first exhibited in Las Vegas, Nevada at Expo Lucha Live @expoluchalive thanks to Masked Republic. @maskedrepublic @maskedrepubliceurope. Thanks to @casamexicofoundation for exhibiting them in Calgary.
