'Profanity Pop' Art Show: What Happens When Animated Characters Get Real

Premiering tonight and on-going for the month of August is Jose Rodolfo Loaiza Ontiveros' return to La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles with his Profanity Pop art show. The show takes beloved animated characters and deconstructs the myth of fairy tales and injects them with real life angst, love, anger and contradictions in religion.

Artist reception: Friday, August 1st; 8-11PM

José Rodolfo Loaiza Ontiveros is back–with Profanity Pop, a celebration of creative freedom in our time.
Mythology, Religion and the representation of power have manifested in all of the great works from antiquity. With Profanity Pop, Rodolfo pays tribute to specific historical works that have inspired many generations. Universal themes are once again narrated by beloved animated characters, but in the guise of the divine and with all the fragility of martyrs. Away from the paradise of happy endings, the pastel sprinkled drama takes on a vulnerability that juxtaposes subversively with situations never similarly interpreted.
 The Monarchy of prejudices and taboos crumble in this story. The disenfranchised reach beyond discrimination, and in this narrative no union is sinful or suppressed.
The absorbing worlds of entertainment, fashion, and excesses, with the magic of kitsch, invite us to desecrate the seductive world of POP.
