Gritty, but Gorgeous: Parvez Taj Bamboo Artwork

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Bamboo Board

I really have a thing for graphic, visceral artwork that is a combination of the literal and the abstract, so I love the artwork of Parvez Taj. I featured him once before for his gritty, urban artwork on eco-friendly kirei board and he’s back at it again with new sustainable art.  I am no less impressed by his latest work, a full series of prints on bamboo ply.

The new series includes a variety of pieces with kid-friendly motifs, like beautiful images of frogs and parrots. The more “grown-up” images include grungy cityscapes and groups of penguins. I’m personally infatuated! Is it possible to have a crush on a piece of art? lol

Why It’s Green:

  • Printed on bamboo with no added formaldehyde
  • Printed with no-VOC, solvent-free UV inks

Price: $78-498

    Oh heck yeah, you can crush on art! I totally HEART Romare Bearden, Franks Deceus, Jacob Lawrence, Elizabeth Catlett, April Harrison, Tamara Natalie Madden, Mose Tolliver… I could go on for days. And I like Parvez, too… his work is very colorful and gritty. Love the parrot!
