Disasterland

Dioniso Punk

Through his family-unfriendly paintings of Cinderella in a meat dress or Jasmine and Belle making out and the Queen from Snow White snorting cocaine, José Rodolfo Loaiza Ontiveros, from Mexico, just seeks to highlight the striking contrast between our ideals and our realities: I think it’s time to stop being afraid and to speak without hesitation about certain taboo subjects.

But, as opposed as it might seem, Rodolfo has utmost respect for the artistry of Disney cartoons, since served as his “first visual school”: It was very stimulating. The colorful landscapes, the stylization of the characters and the amazing animation inspired me. Disasterland — from a past exhibition at La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles — is his tribute to pop culture, fashion, animation, horror films and the undeniable attraction of celebrity.
