WITH JOSÉ PARLÁ AT SPRING INTENSIVE

World-renowned artist José Parlá visited Portland and partnered with GX and Wieden+Kennedy to offer Caldera students an extremely unique two-day painting workshop. On Saturday, youth were introduced to new painting techniques, different forms of expression and the cultural context of street art and art history. Students learned painting techniques to tell their own story and about José’s evolution from street artist to sought-after professional artist with works exhibited in galleries and commissions for buildings. On Sunday, the group collaborated with José on a painting installation that was exhibited at Wieden+Kennedy Gallery throughout the month.

Students: McLovin’, Mike N’ Ike, Serenity, Patito, Bubbles, Gma, Nightcloud, Daphnie, Batman, Tsunami, Beadazzle, Pebbles.

Location: Wieden+Kennedy Gallery

Year: 2014
