App Ocalypse: Hidden Perspectives

Sorry, Andy: The Can’s Gone Bad! Regards, Tomorrow's Society

Within the seemingly minimalist 'App Ocalypse' by Diego Tirigall, our attention is humorously drawn to a cheeky homage to Andy 'soup-can' Warhol. Warhol built his career satirizing consumer society and here, Tirigall, somewhat like an artistically encoded Russian Doll, gives a nod to Warhol to do the same. Only, he's taken the joke a step further, canning the digital life instead, and guess what? It appears the darn can has rusted from within.

It looks as though the overload of data has caused a decay within the 'can', much like air sneaking into an old soup tin, oxidizing it, and brewing up a toxic case of botulism. An unsettling yet apt metaphor for our inflated digital lives, wouldn't you say?"

Digital Life, Meet Death

The core of this piece is a skull peering out from the debris of our digital indulgence. You see, we spend our lives in front of screens immersing ourselves in a world of internet, grasping at the illusion of immortality. Yet this in-your-face cranium's here to remind us that although our selfies may get 10,000 likes, we are all creeping inevitably towards mortality, yikes!

AppOcalypse Light

Then, there’s this 'New Clear Era' pun. 'Nuclear' makes us picture mushroom clouds vaporizing cities, while 'New Clear Era' paint a blissful image of unified growth and enlightenment. The twisted wordplay is as wobbly as a Silicon Valley startup's business plan - do we laugh, cry or pray for salvation?

Painful Laughs and Coded Whispers

Just take a look at those weird doodles of misery wafting from the disaster site. Our first instinct might be to laugh – something about 'pain flames' just seem funny, right? Yet, this humor carries with it a sharp sting, as the flames reflect the existential angst birthed in our digital dystopia.

Words like 'loot box' and 'Future, Soup' jump off the canvas, daring us to crack Tirigall's cryptic humor, a humor so schizophrenic it's like I'm talking about myself in the third person.

Glitch in the Matrix

'App Ocalypse' is a deep probe into the hollowness of modern cyber culture. With a constant struggle for likes, shares and retweets, we’re merely dancing monkeys in the grand circus of algorithms. Packaged in the veneer of dark humor, pop culture references and a dash of mysterious charm, Tirigall’s digi-critique is a stark reminder of the strangely binary world we inhabit.

In a nutshell, buckle up folks! 'App Ocalypse' is more than just a painting - it's a mirror reflecting a distorted, almost monstrous version of ourselves half-eaten by our digital obsessions. Who on earth would have imagined that the glare of the digital monster we've created could reflect such an unsettling self-portrait?

Simply Couldn’t Ask for More!

Diego was absolutely top-notch, going above and beyond our highest expectations. I was on the fence about a few different paintings, but he masterfully crafted a visualization of what the painting would look like in our home. Even though all I sent him was a messy photo, he seamlessly took over, laying out all the possibilities for me. I’m beyond thrilled to start my new Tirigall collection.

The Longevity and Excellence of My Art
Unwavering Commitment to Quality: When it comes to my art, I place an uncompromised emphasis on quality. My commitment to excellence extends beyond aesthetics to the painstaking selection of materials that will ensure longevity and maintain the vibrancy of my work. From the top-tier varnishes to the specialized protective layers - every choice is a conscious step towards creating an investment that will stand the test of time.
Time-Honored Techniques of the Great Masters: In the footsteps of the great masters throughout history, I diligently apply a protective coat to each piece before the varnishing process. This meticulous method, often bypassed in modern-day painting, serves as a pivotal element in preserving the original charm and enabling future restoration of each artwork. Even though this additional step influences my profit margin, I firmly believe in its importance for ensuring each masterpiece I create can withstand the passage of time, enabling enjoyment across generations.
Longevity of the Pieces: One of the most important aspects of my work is the longevity of the pieces. I take great pride in using only the highest quality, professional-grade materials in my paintings.

The durability of my work is a testament to my commitment to quality and the love I have for my craft.

Artisan Packaging: Every box I use for shipping is hand-crafted and specially made to fit each unique painting.
Professional Standard Wooden Crates: For larger pieces, I employ robust wooden crates that meet the strictest professional standards of shipping, akin to those used by art galleries and museums worldwide.
A Layered Approach to Protection: These crates are prepared meticulously with layers of professional-grade protective materials. Acid-free tissue paper, bubble wrap, foam corner protectors, and ultra-resistant cardboard layers come together to form a 'floating' cushion for the artwork, ensuring it remains safe and secure during transit.
Preparation Time The process of packaging, arranging pick-up, and gathering the artwork from storage can take up to three days for cardboard boxes. With regards to wooden crates, I often have a few prepared in my studio to expedite the process, but there can be exceptions. Specific timelines can be discussed anytime upon request.
