Claudio Parentela is an Italian illustrator, painter, photographer, and collage artist, among other things. He has been an active presence in the international underground art scene for years now, creating distinct, dreamlike (or nightmarish) portraits with what seems like anything he can get his hands on. His mixed-medium work is weird and wacky and won’t be confused with any other artist’s work anytime soon. Or ever.
