La Luz de Jesus gallery is located inside the Wacko store in Silverlake. The store alone has enough creative inspirations for a lifetime and the back gallery is the cherry on top.
The month of August had a really cool selection from "Profanity Pop". José Rodolfo Loaiza Ontiveros showed imagery featuring some of our favorite Disney characters in different reality based situations. Snow White taking selfies, Cruella serving & living in a punk rock look, and vandalism of an evil queens village propaganda.
The paintings contained current social issues while including fantasy to bring relevance and reality to viewers.
Here are a few photos of Profanity Pop as well as the release provided by the gallery. Also a few images from other artists on display at the La Luz de Jesus gallery.

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.
