Synopsis: José Parlá has received critical acclaim for his works, which lie at the boundary between abstraction and calligraphy. Composed of layers of paint, gestural drawing and found ephemera, his work evokes the histories of urban environments: Parlá is a documentarian of city life. Using the backdrop of world cities, he remakes in paint what may appear to be photorealist fragments of what he sees in the chaos of the metropolis. His paintings reflect the accumulated memories and experiences, the walls that show a place that once was built over, renewed in some other configuration. Parlá paints revelations, the proof of the history of our neighborhoods; his work shows that words, signs and marks come to mean more, over time, in this symphony of diversity that surrounds us. In Media Res concentrates on the body of Parlá's work that stems from his experiences of living and traveling in various countries: his time in Puerto Rico, his childhood in South Florida in the 1980s, extended journeys throughout the southern United States and Central America in the 1990s and most recent travels throughout Europe, Asia and his ancestral land of Cuba. Spanning painting, watercolor, photography and sculpture, this volume shows Parlá at his most versatile and cosmopolitan.
José Parlá (born 1973) was recently commissioned by One World Trade Center for his monumental mural painting, "One: Union of the Senses" (November 2014), the largest of its kind in New York City, in the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere.

In 2013, Parlá was added to the collection of the British Museum in London and the Albright Knox in Buffalo, New York. Parlá lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
