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.

Oh, yes...many orders for the smiley shark in Oz!

And Walmarth has this for our friends in France?

Thank you Katerina, a very useful mask for the hard to smile! Walmarth caters for everybody. Would this one be a Friendly Shark make? I hear they are very much sought after in Australia.

Thank you Katerina for your inspiring message. It seem that we will have to start wearing masks soon if we want to go out for the allowed hour of exercise. I shall remember your advice.

Hey Katerina great contributions. That 'keep smiling under the mask' is such a good motto and the Bloody Mary is giving me quite an appetite.

Is there a Food Court in the WalMarth SuperCenter?

Or do-it-at-home:

Need a drink with trimmings?
