The show is a satire about consumerism in our society
VANDAL WITH CARE, a show that features artworks by artists Charlie McFarley and Tacot, opened last November 17 at Underdog Gallery in London. The event exhibits sculptures, paintings and art installations that represent a satirical vision of consumption in our society, where programmed obsolescence is accepted as a part of our culture.
One of the most important elements of the exhibition is the food “iconology” that works as a metaphor of people’s compulsion to consume things without any substance or soul.
Charlie McFarley’s work is visceral and in his pieces, he portrays sinister characters that look right back at you. His artwork is inspired on cartoons to criticize adult life through a kid’s point of view. One of its most famous pieces is an anti-Trump mural he made forVice in Bali, alongside renowned street artists like Banksy, Stik and Shepard Fairey.
Tacot is an artist that works in anonymity and changes his techniques and styles on a regular basis. What he doesn’t alter is his goal: to question and send a message to his viewers about the subjects he uses in his work. He is a newcomer to the modern art scene.
The exhibition will be open to the public until November 26.
