Welcome to Dismayland (8 pieces)

Oh man, is that Minnie pissin' all over the sidewalk?! Welcome to Dismayland, definitely not the happiest place on Earth. Jeff Gillette's series places our favorite Disney characters outside their usual plushy confines, and instead relocates them in the decrepit conditions of third world countries. The paintings confront viewers with strong images and feature familiar characters living in the slums, laying haphazardly almost half-dead, or using the streets as their personal toilet. If you find yourself in Los Angeles, you can check out Gillette's Dismayland at CoproGallery in Santa Monica through May 1, 2010.
