What would animals do if our positions were reversed? Some might adore us, but others might do what strong>Ericailcane has portrayed in these drawings, which fall somewhere between visions of doom and illustrations belonging in children’s fairytale books.
Now until January 28th at the Carmichael Gallery of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, “Man Is The Bastard” is a solo show featuring new works by Italian street artist Ericailcane. If animals had their way with men in Ericailcane’s imaginary world, everything from mice to grizzly bears would attempt to crush and destroy not necessarily us, but our creations — our skyscrapers, trains, cars, and currency are all fair game for destruction. Perhaps it’s a negative way of seeing things, but it is, in many ways, our current relationship with the animal planet, only with the parties reversed.
