The Pop Apocalypse By Filip Hodas (8 New Pics)

Pop culture tries to sell us the image of joyous consumerism, happiness, fun, and perpetual excitement, all of which create the illusion that the experience can be propagated to infinity, and everything lasts forever. They lack a reflection that these images, even in the most optimistic scenarios, are bound to end somewhere, sometime.

This is why Czech artist Filip Hodas’ works are so sobering and outstanding. They take us to a place where the happy imagery of popular cartoon and movie characters is far gone into decay and abandoned. And seeing these characters at their demise gives far greater contrast to our now somewhat idyllic present time than just seeing a random abandoned place. Well-known in the present, yet seemingly forgotten in the future—it gives an extra tinge of the apocalyptic sense.

It isn’t the first time Hodas’ work has been featured on Bored Panda. Here’s the first part of his works on this theme. He has also done 3D renders of anatomically correct animated characters, which also have been featured here. His works are much-appreciated elsewhere as well, and his Instagram account has over 580k followers.

I think all that stuff looks like it belongs in Star Wars especially with where they are
