About the artist:
Jeff Gillette is known for his paintings that juxtapose Disney characters with dystopian landscapes rife with landfills and slums. His works blend 20th-century cartoon illustration and traditional European oil painting techniques while highlighting the global economic disparities caused by 21st-century capitalism. Gillette’s subversive style was crystalized in the 2010 solo exhibition “Dismayland,” widely credited as the inspiration for Banksy’s 2015 apocalyptic theme park installation “Dismaland.” The infamous street artist used Gillette’s painting Minnie Hiroshima (2015) as the official poster for “Dismaland” and invited him to participate in an exhibition at the so-called bemusement park alongside artists like Damien Hirst and Jenny Holzer. Gillette draws inspiration from his travels throughout India and Nepal as a Peace Corps volunteer. His works have been exhibited in Los Angeles, London, and Singapore.
