Oompa-Loompas Live And Die By Chocolate

"I've taken it upon myself to expose the sad truth about Wonkaland; the stuff they won't show you in the movies. An Oompa-Loopma had fallen and drowned in the chocolate river during the night, and Mr. Wonka has delayed the start of his tour in order to conduct a body recovery operation. It's dark work, but at least it's not being conducted in dark chocolate. This isn't the first time an Oompa-Loompa has perished on the job site, and what becomes of their inevitably oversweetened remains has never been discovered."

Robert Brandenburg takes old paintings and adds his own pop culture twist. Here is the above painting, before the addition of Willy Wonka. He has a full show opening at Gallery 1988 on January 7.
