Carl Parker is a dynamic, self-taught Canadian artist whose style is best described as Modern Eclecticism. Using elements of realism, surrealism, abstract expressionism and impressionism to create thought-provoking and emotionally engaging works, he refers to his process as "spontaneous flow". He coined the term to describe the unplanned and inspiration driven approach he takes in his work. His art can be found in private and corporate collections throughout the world, including Canada, the U.S., Australia, New Zealand and Europe. To date, he has shown his work in various cities including Toronto, Calgary, Florence, Italy and Paris. He has shared his skills, experience and love of art by authoring his recent book, Carl Parker: A Life in Paint as well as by teaching both privately and at the high school level.
