Artist Brendan O’Connell is fascinated by the Walmart store experience, a concept that has quickly made its way into the core of American culture.

Many people share this fascination as the superstores are so big and pervasive, they are almost like worlds of their own with different scenery and characters than the rest of the planet. In his Walmart painting series, the artist portrays the sheer amount of stuff that is crammed into the aisles including endless amounts of bras, Wonder Bread and other numerous prepackaged items.

Instead of surveying the beauty of nature in his artwork, Brendan O’Connell has found his preferred calling within the impressively expansive landscape of the overwhelming Walmart store dynamic.
