World dedicated to balloons - DO NOT buy online

The text and the globe sign that reappear in all frames, in the last one where the man is carrying the balloons, is done in gouache but in the others, they are replica stamps printed on top of the painting.The text in the paintings actually says “World Dedicated to balloons - buy online” , Like the opposite of what the title of drawing is. All scenes are semi-observed in Mexico City

This work is homage to all the balloon sellers who hold very dear space in my childhood memories in Iran, where we also had balloon sellers,  with the hope that their jobs doesn’t get replaced by online platforms
