These prints by Marco Tóxico embody three of our favorite characteristics for memorable art: social commentary, wit and humor. Marco's art contains quick wit and incisive criticism that sums up the follies of our self-obsessed, pleasure-obsessed and entertainment-obsessed era. Always done in jest, with an aura of irony and sincerely, these illustrations reference the brainwashing and bewitching media, the infiltration of pop culture, and hint at corruption in both politics and in human nature. Marco exhibits a grotesquerie of characters that are both ridiculing and playful, funny yet serious. The scenarios he sets up are synonymous with the affairs of the individual, in the vein of everyday life, they will nudge the viewer at the same time delight and entertain.
