ARTIST SUBMITTED BIO
Dustin Parker is an artist. As an infant, a box of crayons ignited his passion for creating art and that fire continues to burn in his veins. He grew up drawing robots and dinosaurs on his spelling tests and constructing his own action figures out of construction paper and scotch tape. As an adult, Parker earns his nacho money designing logos, drawing illustrations and selling paintings in art galleries. Parker procrastinates about writing and illustrating his first graphic novel but is proficient at wasting time drawing zombies, skulls and dinosaurs. He is nourished by David Lynch films, Chuck Palahniuk novels, Smashing Pumpkins songs and comic books.
Since 2000, Parker has exhibited his art in 12 solo art exhibitions and over 90 group exhibitions throughout the United States, Canada and Japan. Parker's work has also been featured in numerous online and printed publications including Logo lounge, Look Look, Head Magazine, Blanket Magazine, Moloko Plus, Women's Focus, The Wichita Eagle, Cru-A, F5, Wichita Magazine and Proteus Mag.
Dustin Parker proudly calls Wichita, Kansas his home!
