Straddling the controversial lines of brand parody and taxidermy, Portland-based artist Peter Gronquist has come out with a striking series of branded taxidermy. Stoic fauna faces are given a facelift—bison with a neon McDonald’s sign, deer with Gucci and gold skeletons, a Hello Kitty grenade.
Looking at his website (and his nostalgic choice of name font), one gets the feeling that Peter’s works are a peek into what he thinks about today’s current controversial topics, served with a youthful touch and a lot of dry, tongue-in-cheek humor.
