This Venetian street art is AWESOME! I fell in love with it at first glance! Somehow it really suits Venice! It is quality graphic and the topic is also relevant: a shopping maniac snobbish woman… And somehow I found it so familiar today… and finally I got the reason: it reminds me of the Supermarket Lady by Duane HANSON! This sculpture is a masterpiece and an emblematic artwork of the consumer society… Duane HANSON’s sculpture is a highly respected contemporary artwork, while this one is “merely” a street art. BUT! The same greediness and unhappiness can be seen on the two women’s faces! Brilliant! “
