Dale Grimshaw's New Mural in London Takes On Disney

For a new mural in London on the Zetland House, Dale Grimshaw paints a beautiful portrait of a tribal African boy surrounded by imagery of Disney theme park rides and rollercoasters. The piece is titled "Disney's World," which seems to provide commentary on the awkward and often offensive juxtoposition of Disney's commercial genes with their use of Africa and the exotic as a spectacle. The tribal boy is just as much an "attraction" as Dumbo or any of the other licensed characters in Disney films, parks, and various other properties.
