Nicola Parente
"My work struggles to define the intersection that is present in daily urban life. I am intrigued by the interplay between the fluid and the static elements present in today’s urban tapestry. My work investigates untangling the chaos, the brilliance of technology, human development, nature’s vibrancy and ultimate demise.” A Houston resident for 29 years, Italian American artist Nicola Parentecurrently works out of his studio at Winter Street Studios. Working in a variety of media (painting, photography, installations, and textile design), he engages the viewer in dialogues of human encounter within the urban environment. Most recent projects and exhibitions include “Genesis” a museum exhibit at the Museo de Guadalupe in Mexico. Earlier this year Parente partnered with Writers in the Schools (WITS) to transform trees into “Poet-Trees” in Houston during National Poetry Month. Parente dressed trees at Buffalo Bayou Park. Visitors were encouraged to write a poem, sentiment or thought and hang it on the trees. This interactive installation had more than 7,000 visitors over the course of 4 weeks.In 2016-17, Parente’s paintings were part of a touring exhibition between Esbjerg Denmark and Houston TX. In 2014, Parente was featured as one of Houston’s 100 creatives by HoustonPress and was the featured artist in the Bayou Review, a literary and visual arts journal published by the University of Houston. Parente’s works can be seen in public and private collections in the United States, Mexico, Spain, Italy, Germany, and Ethiopia. He obtained a BS from King’s College (PA) and a Master’s degree from the University of St. Thomas (TX).
