DYNAMIC, EMOTIONAL, DREAMY: 5 QUESTIONS FOR CEVIN PARKER

Cevin Parker’s intuitive way of creating revolves around intimate topics. By bringing his own world of thoughts onto the canvas, Parker creates a sensual relationship between the painting and the viewer, connecting the harmonious tones of the environment to the emotions he creates within. Cevin Parker uses color in an emotional way as a constantly evolving source of inspiration in his abstract paintings.

The self-taught Berlin-based artist reflects his emotions and subconscious, inspired by concepts from an impulsive vision or an unexpected muse. His approach, Cevin Parker himself describes as emotional art, revealing traces of memory, which are a sensitive reflection of the world without ego. Cevin Parker spoke to misa.art about what got him into art, how his distinctive style developed and shares insights into his artistic process. 

What was your first encounter with art?  

I have always had a different view on the world. From an early age on, art has allowed me to escape ordinary life and dream of a different one. I am originally from Essen, Germany, where art traditionally plays a big role and one has many touching points with it living in the city.

How has your style evolved ever since you started creating?  

Over time, my art has become more honest and deeper. The way I work, reflects me and my emotional states, which was difficult to focus on a canvas in the beginning. 

When creating, do you have a routine that you follow? Or does the painting evolve with the process?  

I work very intuitively. Each of my paintings or sculptures develop in the process of creating. Of course there is a rough picture that I have in mind when I start - but the majority are emotions arising in the moment.

What role does spontaneity play in your art?  

A big one. Being spontaneous allows me to show deeper and a wider range of emotions in an artwork and not to be trapped in an emotional state. 

What feeling do you aim to evoke in the viewer of your work? 

I want to challenge them emotionally and by viewing my art bring them closer to themselves and their emotions.
