Pop art meets trash: GIFs by Claudio Parentela

Fast fashion. Digital overload. Pop culture trash.

Claudio Parentela is channelling our era of excess into brilliantly absurdist GIFs. His booty-shaking, glitter-coated collage art blends fashion and beauty imagery with internet memes.

Having worked across mediums as an illustrator, photographer, painter and cartoonist for the past 20 years, Claudio has become fully immersed in the world of digital art. “I like to experiment and reinvent myself again and again and again” says the Italian artist. “I love fashion – high, low, weird fashion.” Same, Claudio.
