Smiles & Smirks

Art with a measure of humour is required by Walmarth Corporation for its chain of supermarkets, located in the Queendom of Retailia and in Cascadia Artpost. Through this collaboration Cascadia Artpost and Mail Art Martha are continuing to give impulse to Trashpo, the artistic vision of Diane Keys.

‘Walmarth Corporation is an entertaining and witty parody of corporate, consumer culture. Cascadia Artpost’s painstaking realization of Mail Art Martha’s ideas through detailed, special effects style models makes Walmarth Corporation one of the crowning achievements of Trashpo in the half-decade that it has been producing a large quantity of art.’

In addition to Trashpo the Corporation has now expanded to include political satire, parody, comics, caricature and witty playfulness.
Your contribution is needed to fill the shelves.

Congratulations on your new friend but I have a dilemma, Michael. Shall Walmarth put your amazing three dimensional creation in the Pet's Corner or in the Millinery Department? being the magical place it is they will be in both and I can sleep tonght.

Nancy! What a Zensational piece full of quiet contentment. Yes it is ideal for Walmarth, small contented Buddha-like smiles are flying of the shelves. Just like the raw material in your picture did recently.
