Ryan Parks is a mixed media artist, music producer/performer, and CEO/founder of critically robust cassette tape label, HARSH RIDDIMS. He was born in College Park, GA and grew up skating all around Atlanta, soaking up the dense kaleidoscopic cultural ooze found both in and outside the perimeter of Atlanta. Aside from his visual practice which usually takes shape as mixed media (Jacob Lawrence/Matisse inspired in my opinion!) collage, he has been releasing music as FIT OF BODY for seven years. Fit of Body crafts soulful house ballads that draw on freestyle, Bell Hooks, old school Detroit techno, jazz, and southern rap passed through a No Wave paradigm. Fit of Body has previously released work on CGI, DKA, Ransom Note, and his own label, Harsh Riddims.
