Dismaland Calais – The Calais Jungle meets DisneyLand in powerful paintings

Five years ago, we talked about the Dismayland series of artist Jeff Gillette, who mixed the opposing world of favelas and DisneyLand into dark and satirical creations. After inspiring last year the title of the Banksy’s Dismaland exhibition, today the artist Jeffrey Gillette is back with a new series of paintings entitled Dismaland Calais in which he tackles the infamous Calais Jungle. Some very powerful creations that will be exhibited at the Lawrence Atkin Gallery in London, from June 24 to July 23, 2016.
