Illustrator Julian Callos is a Los Angeles-based artist whose works reflect society and the pressures presented from the media and surroundings. His politically charged drawings are colorful, yet disturbing.

The smokey-eyed woman, the floating dead boy and the gut-wrapped man are abstract representations of how society choke-holds us to fit into a mold. Although art can be perceived in many ways, the underlying theme of Julian Callos' illustrations is a dark and dreary world that touches base on many of life's delicate scenarios.
