The Art of Camille Rose GarciaBook - 2007
All-new work from the artist/author of The Saddest Place on Earth. Garcia's seemingly light-hearted paintings and drawings of charming cartoon-like characters paradoxically actually depict dark tales of violence, corruption and greed. Camille Rose Garcia's paintings of creepy cartoon children living in wasteland fairy tales are critical commentaries on the failures of capitalist utopias. Her influences include Phillip K. Dick, William Burroughs, Henry Darger, Walt Disney, The Clash and The Dead Kennedys.
