Artist Biography – Kim Parrent
I am a born and raised Calgarian but have lived in Majorca, Spain and Houston, Texas. I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the University of Calgary with a major in Art History. Owning and operating a small business for over 20 years installing window displays, doing faux finishing and decorative painting in retail stores, showhomes and private residences has allowed me to paint for a living.
In 2017 I created and painted graphics in The Calgary National Music Centre. Participating in a city wide initiative to create banners for Calgary, banners I created were hung in the community of Garrison Green. One of these paintings is now in The Museum of the Regiments and two portraits I did of Indigenous Chiefs are on the Tsu’tina Nation in the Indian affairs building (Tribal Council) . Being on the event committee for Prostaid Calgary in 2019 I was able to paint a portrait of Legendary Canadian musician Randy Bachman. A portrait I did of Ian Curtis of the band Joy Division sold to one of the founding band members in the UK. I am on the Manchester Cultural history record for producing this painting. In 2018, I participated in Expoluchalive in Las Vegas and exhibited the large oil paintings of luchadors I create now and continue to paint. I am currently working on a series of paintings depicting all the Stampede Wrestlers. Recently, a portrait I did of Dale Bozzio from the 80s band Missing Persons was sent to Los Angeles it will be included and published in her biography, Destination Unknown.
