José Rodolfo Loaiza Ontiveros – “Chaos Pop”

September 8 @ 12:00 pm - October 4 @ 6:00 pm

free

Rodolfo is an artist that specializes in putting famous pop characters in unorthodox situations, at least for said characters. He tries to measure his viewers tolerance levels by showing beloved characters in dark, sometimes gritty and realistic situations, giving his works real shock value, and exploring the general theme of “loss of innocence”.

His projects are a tribute to pop culture, fashion, animation, horror films and the undeniable celebrity voyeurism that exists in the world of Hollywood.

He want raising the issue of what would happen with our classic characters if they were flesh and blood and were confronted by a frenetic and excessive world of fame, how many of them would prove to be susceptible to the excesses of drugs, alcohol, harassment or vanity?

With his sharp and characteristic black humor Rodolfo captures images, once morbidly circulated by the media, and proposes a novel way of looking at them.

In his work the legendary heterosexual happy endings have been deemed outdated and have lost their exclusivity. The minorities will finally encounter an ending they’ve yearned for, beyond any bias or phobia.

His work is in the collections of, Long Gone John, Greg Wells, David Arquette, Rupert Grint, Kevin Haskins, Jessicka Addams and others.

Some of the Social media personalities/celebrities that have published and commented about his work are, Katy Perry, Madonna, Slash, Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Drake Bell, Asia Argento, Marina and the Diamonds, The Veronicas, Alaska y Dinarama, Michelle Rodriguez, Jeremy Scott, Liberty Ross and Perez Hilton.
