We are proud to announce our first exhibition at Project Space with Parra.
32-year-old Dutch illustrator and designer Parra has decorated the Amsterdam underground with his playful, bizarre graphics that span a broad base of themes, from introspective to audacious and bawdy. The mostly self-taught artist seems to channel a vintage form with curves, yet with a decidedly modern, post-pop approach. Parra’s vibrant and often humorous images feature a distinctive, hand-drawn feel, and can be seen printed on various exhibitions around the globe—club flyers, record sleeves and billboards—as well as silk screened on tees and sweaters. His work can also be found in the second installment of Curated by Arkitip, adorning the Incase signature MacBook Sleeve and iPhone Slider Case.
Parra’s characteristic style has also extended into his music career with electro-rock group Le Le. Their most popular track “Breakfast” features Parra’s typography and imagery set in motion to the song’s pulsating beats and comical (and slightly naughty) lyrics.

Now available for download: 9 exclusive Evan Hecox wallpapers for your computer desktop, iPhone and iPod touch.
Artist and designer Evan Hecox displays his fascination with the urban landscape on Incase products for the sixth installment of Curated by Arkitip. Available today, the Evan Hecox series has been issued in three limited editions: New York, London and Tokyo. As the project’s first artist to present a series of products, Hecox brings to life nontraditional depictions of the famed cities and their associated national emblems on our signature MacBook Sleeve and iPhone Slider Case.
“Curated by Arkitip is a platform for Incase and Arkitip to bring artist-driven products to Apple users worldwide,” said Damon Way, Incase Chief Brand Officer. “With Evan, we wanted to introduce a multi-piece offering that carried a regional theme focusing on major metropolitan cities where Apple has established flagship retail presence. The three urban centers chosen—New York, London and Tokyo—hold iconic status worldwide, so the result is a compelling series of region-themed products with global appeal.”
Drawing inspiration from the complexity of the modern metropolis, Hecox’s stylistic approach is based on the process of amplification as it affects form and color: breaking down the image, removing certain elements and emphasizing others. In his original artistry for Curated by Arkitip, Hecox filters the mundane into captivating illustrations of New York, London and Tokyo, seemingly filled with narratives beyond the images themselves, and applies them to MacBook Sleeves. The Hecox Slider Cases complement the three Sleeves, bearing instantly recognizable national symbols of the three cities. Hecox re-imagined the symbols through his stylistic approach, resulting in artistic interpretations that are both familiar and new.
Hecox has found success both as a commercial and fine artist recognized for his unique stylistic approach that blends photography, hand drawn illustration and graphic design. With an extensive portfolio that includes skateboard graphics, illustrations, books, television ads and fine art, Hecox has been exhibited in galleries across the globe, including Los Angeles, Sydney, London and Tokyo.
