"Wasteland Children of the Evolution" is an inspired title for an exhibition of wild art by Michel Valentino which starts August 1st in Vockerode, Germany. Many characterize his work as controversial. This exhibition will add fuel to a hot fire as it depicts people wearing gas masks.

Valentino is very talented at working in photography, sculpture, video and performance art. His "Marque de Sade" video, seen above, is a fascinating collision of emotions.

Implications - Invoking emotion in audiences and consumers is a great way to not only grab the attention of shoppers, but also creates a sense of intrigue that may benefit companies when it comes to standing out in the competitive market.
