Artist Josh Holinaty deftly critiques modern society in bis latest series of illustrations. One drawing shows a trucker lying in bed with his buddies raising a beer over his lifeless body and a laptop open and glaring on his lap. The result is a tongue-in-cheek approach to society wherein Holinaty manages to poke fun at contemporary culture while still maintaining a lighthearted attitude.

The trucker is not Holinaty’s only suffering subject. A snowman with no head, a man crying on a city bench and a parka-wearing man soaked with snow all feature in his other pieces. Holinaty’s vibrant art brings forth his dry sense of humor while forcing viewers to think about contemporary culture and its shortcomings.
