Artworks are often the product of an artist's desire to explore deep, complicated themes. The resulting pieces are often laden with complex meanings and they allow for multiple interpretations.

The same cannot be said of Wilhelm Staehle's sarcasm-infused 'Silhouette masterpiece theatre' collection.

His work is simple, yet clever, and it is incredibly easy to consume. It's sure to evoke a smile from most people.

Implications - The smart art shows images of people and animals paired with numerous sayings and phrases. Some of the art pieces are even quite dark such as the Goldilocks parody in which the bears are actually eating her for lunch. One of the bears exclaims, "so much better than porridge."
