Disney animated movies and cartoons have been integral parts of our lives. We have grown up with them the same way we grow up with our friends. We have identified with their sorrows, their happiness as well as the magical worlds they inhabit. There’s a charm in the way these characters function and spend their lives that’s miles apart from our own lives and that’s something that makes us adore them even more.
Mexican visual artist José Rodolfo Loaiza Ontiveros however, had very different ideas.
He has imagined our beloved childhood characters into modern life. He has described this as “coming-of-age” and “loss of innocence” for the re-imaginings of all these characters.
He believes that there are two important principles to be followed as far as his work is concerned: firstly, there are no “conventional” happy endings and secondly, the characters have to come to terms with modern vices like smoking, drug addiction and so on and so forth.
That’s quite a handful to deal with if you ask us.
