Art Parody

I think this art work is very creative and jovial. It brings about thought of the American society right now and the growing obesity epidemic. Here is this man holding a sandwich, a can of soda and his TV remote on what seems to be a bed of one huge doughnut. It represents the sedentary lifestyle that goes along with that habit of eating everything that comes out of a processed container. I recognized about 4 of the images, having previous knowledge of the original purpose of the images makes it easier to understand the messages. For example the homer parody was copied off da Vinci’s Vitruvian man which is cannon for the perfect man whereas this is the perfect cannon for an obese man. Most of the times I see parodies of  art work American gothic.
