Carl Parker is a Canadian artist that creates paintings that have roots in Expressionism. His influences range from Edvard Munch to Vincent van Gogh to Francis Bacon. Having been immersed in drawing since childhood, at the age of 36, he decided to take that ability into painting. Quickly, he saw success in the fine arts. Carl has an eclectic and signature style which tends to contain emotion and complexities of family life and challenges, as well as triumphs of people on the Autism Spectrum and all people. He paints in his own way and this honest style was embraced by collectors. His art resonates with his fans and they relate to the life symbolism and human emotion that must contain joy, pain, and every experience in between. A testament to what is possible, his art can now 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.
