The Slave Cult Of Consumerism… Street Art Style!

This sticker was found in the streets of Chinatown in Seattle, near the train station. At first, it just looks like some Guantanamo-esque prisoners, but closer inspection finds that the main jumpsuited man is holding shopping bags. A street art message on the slave cult of consumerism? I’d say so.

Artist unknown. Tips about names would be beautiful.
