This is such a simple concept, yet seems, simultaneously, kind of off the wall – Rodolfo Loaiza created these pieces as part of an exhibition entitled Disasterland, his personal tribute to “pop culture, fashion, animation, horror films and the undeniable attraction of celebrity”. The fantasies of our childhood meet the fantasies of our adolescence in the form of the absolute takeover of 21st-century Hollywood by The Fame.

The true horror in all of this is that neither one – the fantasy world of Disney or the fantasy world of Hollywood – is attainable. Each is as fantastical as the other, but because fame presents itself in human form, rather than coloured-in cartoons, we feel as if we can somehow share it. Well I’m here with the harsh truth: you can’t! So just go do karaoke like the rest of us.
