A Gallery of Cartoons Invading Reality

Usually when we feature a digital artist on the site here, it’s just because his work is cool or fun or worth seeing. There’s not often a deeper meaning behind it, but in today with the case of “Culture Kidnapper,” there is, and he even is kind enough to explain it himself.

“You take a picture, you add something that has nothing to do with it, and immediately it tells something else,” he says. “”Pictures are part of our everyday life,” he tells us, “we are exposed to thousands everyday and they barely mean something. By adding cartoons in the picture I chose, I want people to have a closer look at the picture than we would normally. I find it interesting to pick innocent pictures from cartoons to talk about serious and scary issues.”

It’s possible to see the metaphor in many of these, but I have to draw the line at Mohammed Ali knocking out Ryu from Street Fighter. What, is that a commentary on the US bombing of Nagasaki or something? Anyway, check out the other pieces below.
