Chris Woods' Consumerist Wonderland

Chris Woods is a Canadian born painter who since 1979 has been on a quest to illustrate the effects of consumerist culture on individuals, by pitting his friends (And subjects) against a veritable barrage of branding and pop culture filled advertisement. Often mixing a nearly religious fervor aspect to these fast food employees, his pieces are rife with surrealism and pompous optimism.

Chris' pieces have become popular icons of anti-corporate movements, and have been featured in various guerrilla movements throughout the years. Check out more of Chris' very interesting portfolio after the break.
