Over the years, the almost thirty-year-old Stussy brand has collaborated with a variety of artists to bring their own unique flavor to their apparel. For their upcoming Spring 2012 Collection, Stussy paired up with Dutch artist Parra, who is well-known in streetwear circles for his signature curvy images, bold colors, vibrant lettering, and interesting characters across a variety of media, including paintings, animation, and sculpture. In a video from his Amsterdam studio, Parra discusses the sources of his inspiration that make their way into his art -- including a short-lived role as a foster parent of a crow, his love of old-school comic books (and hate of the color yellow), and his own father's interest in drawings nude chubby women -- which help to explain the evolution of his style into what we see today.
