Dystopian Disney: Artist Explores the More Disturbing Side of Disney

Jose-Rodolfo-Loaiza-Ontiveros_35Artist José Rodolfo Loaiza Ontiveros created a set of images he calls DisHollywood that explores the darker, more disturbing side of animated Disney movies. And… he pretty much nails it. The results are pretty disturbing. I always liked to imagine the Disney universe as a happy place full of kindness and sunshine. In this reality it’s more of a ghetto filled with depression, drug use, and suicide.

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, idealised presentation of these characters, a new context of social vulnerability shows the darker side of our contemporary society.

I know, I know. No one can ever understand those crap-descriptions of art that an artist gives. Why can’t they ever just say what they really were going for? “I needed money so I painted something that would sell.” OR “Drugs, I was on lots of drugs.” OR “I just wanted to paint them nude. What more reason could there ever be?”

Hit the jump for the rest of the set.
