El día que Godzilla lloró (The Day Godzilla Cried) is part of a larger series of digital works titled The Great Assault of the Century. Who Steals he Imagination? In this post-apocalyptic work, Godzilla – the most important nuclear monster in the world – appears as a human disguise, surrounded by other characters from globalized popular culture. Among the large number of references, on his left arm we see a Pokemon flower that opens as a symbol of hope, while the other hand holds the second bomb that the United States dropped on the world: Coca-Cola.
Israel Urmeer’s practice is developed mainly in drawing, sometimes taking to other media such as sculpture or animation. He draws intuitively from the world of advertising, the internet, globalized pop culture and recent history.
