Fruity Pebble Larry King

In Land of a Million Cereals, currently on view at Mission17, artist Ryan Alexiev takes breakfast cereal out of the box and puts it on the canvas. ArtLicker‘s got the scoop:

Alexiev creates exaggerated and at times gawdy representations of consumer culture as seen through the eyes of a F.O.B. Bulgarian peasant. The result is a humorous and thought-provoking commentary on what we consume and why we do it.

No doubt — Larry King looks pretty appropriate rendered in high-fructose corn syrup and artificial coloring. Show closes August 2. Link.
