Randy Chavez (Oakland, California Poster)
Randy Chavez created this poster for the World Magnetic stop at Oracle Arena, Oakland, California, December 20, 2008. The image shows a test dummy slouched in a bumper car in a pose reminiscent of 15th Century religious depictions of the Lamentation of Christ.
Chavez cites the influence of Symbolist paintings, the large church paintings he saw as a kid, and magical realism authors like Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
