Artist Swaps The Names Of Cities And Towns Around The World With 1,800 Cultural Slurs To Create ‘Map Of The Stereotypes’

 

 

'The Map of the Stereotypes': Slovak graphic design artist Martin Vargic has re-imagined the world according to cultural slurs, assumptions and stereotypes, with obvious choices like China becoming 'Factory', Australia 'Kangaroo' and Italy 'Pizza', as well more questionable ones, such as Spain as 'Pubes' and Canada 'Maple Syrup'<br>

” Everything you need to know about the world is right here, according to graphic design artist Martin Vargic.
The Slovak student, who made a name for himself earlier this year with his ‘Map of the Internet’, has followed up that effort with ‘Map of the Stereotypes’, a detailed reworking of countries, cities and towns the world over to reflect the countless cultural generalizations and assumptions.”

” Vargic took three months to configure the vintage-style base world map on Photoshop, with two additional months of research for the labels, for which there are said to be 1,800 in total.

‘ The majority of stereotypes are basically oversimplications, and though they are based on a real phenomenon, it is wrong to associate them with the entire country, nation, race or other group of people,’ Vargic told The MailOnline.

‘ When looking on the map, it needs to be understood that it shows the world from the point of view of a stereotypical westerner, making it a stereotype itself, the manifestation of the stereotype about the entire western world.”

 

 

 

 Epic detail: The map is said to feature over 1,800 stereotypes. Vargic renamed Mongolia 'Genghis Khahn' after the founder of the Mongol Empire, while China became 'Factory, India 'Holy Cow', Pakistan 'Al-Qaeda' and Afghanistan 'Terrorists'

” Vargic renamed each country to a stereotype he believes best represents that nation.

  Some are obvious, such as called Russie ‘Communists’, Turkey ‘Kebab’, Australia ‘Kangaroo’, Italy ‘Pizza’ and China ‘Factory’.

  While others are much more questionable, with Canada becoming ‘Maple Syrup’ and Span ‘Pubes’.
Ireland became ‘Gingers’, Sweden ‘Metrosexuals’, Colombia ‘Cocaine’ and Korea ‘Bad Drivers’.”

 

 

 

    Regular readers will recall some of Mr Vargic’s previous works such as his beautiful map of the internet and the world as seen with the polar ice caps melted .

Copies of these maps along with many other fabulous creations can be purchased here and here

What If Famous Paintings Were Photoshopped to Look Like Fashion Models?

 

 

Sandro Botticelli, Birth of Venus, 1486

 

 

” Whether it’s tucking tummies, contouring jaw lines, enlarging eyes and lips, brushing out cellulite, or full-out head swapping, I’ve seen it all as a photo editor. While the conversation about the media’s portrayal and obsession with an unrealistic and unattainable beauty standard is not a new one, I think it’s crazy how much retouching people don’t notice. Over the last five years, having done many of the quick, subtle fixes that are the industry standard myself, I know that even an image considered to look “natural” is anything but.

  Of course it hasn’t always been that way. Throughout art history, painters from Titian to Rubens to Gauguin found beauty in the bodies of women who would never fit into a size 0. But what would these famous works of art look like were they to conform to today’s Photoshopped standards of beauty? We’ve taken a digital liquefy brush to the painstakingly layered oils of some of the most celebrated paintings of the female form, nipping and tucking at will. There may be something sacrilegious in that, but the same could be said for our contemporary ideas of beauty.

  Is their another classic work of art you’d like to see photoshopped to meet today’s beauty standards? Email Lauren your ideas.”

 

 

   An interesting project that does more to highlight the absurdity of today’s fixation on skinny than perhaps the artist expected . See the others here at Take Part.
