Super A’s Trapped Figures

In a series of paintings that beg questions about perception, objectivity and truth, artist Super A shows real world figures trapped within their pop culture shells. Elegantly painted, the pop culture characters are shown weaving around their real world counterparts, in a ribbon-like effect. Snow White’s cartoon exterior hides a real world woman inside. A doe is shrouded by it’s Disney ‘shell’ The result is bizarre and fascinating. Via Colossal:

“Nowadays the most dominant myths we have embraced as an warm blanket of truth are liberty, property and individualism,” said Super A. “We tend to see these as absolute objective truths which suit the best interests of all humanity. But aren’t we just trapped within our cozy reality? And if it’s cozy… Should we even dare to break free?”
