The Last Slice Of Pizza, 2023

Acrylic, canvas on hand cut wood

Dhani Barragan's internationally exhibited work features protagonists in states of change — heroes caught in the act of metamorphosis. He takes beloved cartoon characters, including the likes of Bart Simpson and Spongebob Squarepants, and pushes them to their limits. They appear like plush toys ready to burst at the seams, placed in situations that introduce new levels of pathos and surreality to produce what the artist calls Deconstructed Pop.
