Murales Mutantes en Revolución is easily the greates tumblr ever. Huge respect to @reindertot for putting it together.

It’s not easy to pick out one or two murals, though for sheer zaniness it’s hard to top this one, (or @reindertot‘s dead-on exegesis):

En una dimensión paralela, Chávez era LITERALMENTE, un centauro militar rebelde que, al igual que esta dimensión, siempre se le plantó a los mas poderosos. Zeus, receloso, y no conforme con el cáncer de Chávez, decide electrocutarlo, rasgándole el uniforme militar en el proceso. Los rayos también se llevan por delante a un indígena prehíspanico que al parecer segundos antes estaba realizando una rutina sexy sobre un piano. A la izquierda, lo que infiero es el espíritu de Reverón y Barry White envejecido, esquiva con gracia la furia de Zeus (y al parecer le roba un adorno extra al indigena que intentaba ser sexy). A la extrema izquierda, una entidad poderosa que pudiese ser Cronos, Bárbol o Saruman, supervisa el castigo. Ya en tierra, Chávez resiste con gallardía la furia de Zeus. En una movida desafortunada, se apoya en una modelo con anorexia la cual no le queda otra que resignarse ante su mala fortuna (anoréxica y de pasapalo a punto de recibir miles de vatios de Zeus). Igual, es en parte su culpa. Pam Grier-Cleopatra Jones, con vitiligo en las piernas, una balanza y una bandera de Venezuela bien le había advertido que se alejara. Unos buitres, un rottweiller y un bulldog arremeten contra un libro azul mientras un desnudo Arnold El Travieso, con vitiligo avanzado, intenta ahuyentarlos.

Honorable mention, this one.

  1. “Niño aterrorizado ante la presencia de un pequeño alienígena cabezón patriota (suponemos Bolivar)” oh my how I laughed my ass off!

  2. The parrot is a ringneck or an eclectus which are from South Asia or Polynesia respectively. Should have been a Guacharaca or some kind of Macaw.

  3. 3 observations:
    1. Too bad the location of these murals is not noted.
    2. Loved the pineapple at the foot of the centauro revolucionario bolivariano, among the margaritas and the barrelsl of oil.
    3. All Pope Francis had to do to get elected for the job was show La Piedrita Venceremos.

  4. Purely and simply, this is outright schizophrenia. When chavismo is over, the country is gonna have to build a lot of facilities to institutionalize these carajos.

    • so true on both counts. But I’d vote first for education on nutrition, specifically to lower the glycemic index, and for the low-cost supply of other options in the food groups. If implemented, it should help in separating the garden variety of mental instabilities from the hard core genetic stuff.

  5. Wow, this is sick.

    A trident for power, a diety who represents the unification of Hinduism, Marxism, Christianity, Venezuela, Islam,and the Tropics…
    I wonder what the elephant foot is all about?

    Repulsive.

  6. I laughed so hard with this analysis I almost fell.:
    “Es básicamente un cuento de terror. Chávez en plan enano orco empujado por un brazo desmembrado, intenta rescatar a una extasiada Doña Florinda (que parece querer arrojarse al fuego) mientras un Capriles Frankestein (podría tambien ser Tarek William Saab en el 2002), con un jetpack de la bandera gringa el cual tiene como combustible algodón de azucar, embalsama y termina de crear una momia. Todo eso en la mitad de un incendio. El surreal mural es completado por cinco chavistas, que, a juzgar por sus ojos, están claramente hipnotizados. ¿Simbolismo? No, sencillamente pésima ejecución.”

      • Its not malicious editing. He says: esos comerciantes son tan victimas de los capitalistas … que roban como nosotros. Meaning that some business men are as victims as the “people” . The sentence is clear if you listen the whole thing

          • That kind of “effects” is very ubiquitous in Latin America media and particularly in Venezuela. It also gets on my nerves. I think mankind is branching in Venezuela, though: most Venezuelans on either side of the trenches think that rubbish is normal.

          • That mockery on Chávez and now Maduro on how they speak or how folkloric they are to our middle/upper middle class good taste has always helped chavismo.

          • I do not mean here just mocking their style.
            I don’t know if it is that people living in Latin America or in Spain don’t notice that, but those “special effects”, the can laughter, the repetition of the audio, are utterly insulting for most people outside and, I believe, for quite a lot in Venezuela who are just not very vocal.
            It is as if those who prepared those videos think the viewers are too idiotic not to realize what is the issue.
            It is to a certain extent similar to the very paternalistic, pedantic tone of this guy in Alo Ciudadano. It is a certain tendency in Latin media to consider viewers complete morons who need the whole thing “prepared” for them.

    • Hehehe….. What a goofball…. What was he trying to say anyway- is that an authentic freudian slip?

      Love especially the girl on maduro’s left imitating him…

  7. On the “Mondongo hindú-criollo Chávez-Shiva” —
    1. Why is Bolivar’s image in Chavez crotch?
    2. What is the Al-Queda character on Chavez left knee?
    3. What is the meaning of the snake choking Chavez?
    4. What is the meaning of the Devil’s trident held in right hand?
    5. Why does he have three left arms and only two right arms?
    6. Shiva had a third eye, does Chavez?

    • 1 – 2. I wondered, too.
      3. Simplemente un collar.
      4. Trident is actually held by the left hand (from the perspective of the artist).
      5. That’s heavy, man.
      6. La pava tiene sus límites.

      • thanks, Rich. Yes, cobra. But I had no idea about the trident being a symbol of Hinduism(?) Imagine all the energy that’s gone into reading up and internalizing all this spirituality > hybridization — none of it into really developing the nation…

      • Rich Rostrum

        The snake means the power over life and death, fertility, transformation, and triumph over the passions and senses, and is a symbol of enlightenment, seen both in Hinduism and Buddhism.,

  8. Actually these government sponsored artists are just another media for “trolling by the state” as defined in CC: continuous attacks on the gentilicio, to have values destroyed and the fighting spirit diminish among us the resistance tot he occupying force.

    My apologies, for my troll, wrote this in a different post, but I think it also applies here: ”

    VENEZUELA IS NOT WHAT THE CUBAN PROPAGANDA MACHINE wants you to think it is.
    We are all victims of a state run program of cultural annihilation and induced hopeless-ness.

    I also feel trapped with shame from time to time, and need to consciously stop on my tracks, and remember my family, my values, mu friends and total strangers all-around who were kind, and open and warm to me! that is the real Venezuela, the one that still has keep the madness somewhat at hand and has not yet fallen to kill each other in the streets with machetes and sticks …

    (Criminal levels may be proving my thesis wrong, but I still use that mental clutch to fight the propaganda induced “shame”)

    Fucking communists I say!

    Venezuela will only survive as a gentilicio if they man up (and woman up indeed) and start burning some cuban flags and any one that shows up to protect them. “

  9. The Maduro ones are plainly crap. It must be so embarrasing for him everytime he takes a trip out in his cavalcade to see incredible Chavez art everywhere and then a token stencil moustache.
