DIS HOLLYWOOD by José Rodolfo Loaiza Ontiveros attempts to re-mix beloved characters from fairy tales with other entertainment icons from the world of cinema, celebrity and music, a Hollywood elite getting up to mischief. As the artist says: “Welcome to my Sick World.”
The exhibition at the La Luz De Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles featuring José ‘s “latest visual project which attempts to re-mix beloved characters from Disney fairy tales with other entertainment icons from the world of cinema, celebrity and music.” The art show will open on Friday, August 2, 2013 from 8-11 PM and be on display until Sunday, September 1st. You can view more previews online at the La Luz De Jesus Gallery and Hi-Fructose Magazine websites.
DisHollywood is also a barometer for measuring our tolerance and acceptance levels; a new way of observing the “happy ending” that trumpets the time of equality is now. In contrast to the baroque fantasy implied by the original, idealized presentation of these characters, a new context of social vulnerability shows the darker side of our contemporary society.
Thus, I invite you to watch this segment pictures in a critical and open minded way!
