Jonathan Weiner (a.k.a. Viner) uses traditional tools and materials in his paintings and illustrations to convey the state of man. He uses allegory, surrealism, and stylization in his images to show themes facing society such as change, violence, morality and power. His art has pretty powerful imagery and his style is very original.

We should find ourselves so lucky to be surrounded by such talent in our times, people are too quick to take the easy way out and hide from hardship.
Bottom Dwellers is my favorite.
