Bennett Slater, a Canadian-based designer and illustrator, uses his immense talent with oil painting to make social commentary on popular icons in our culture. By using a duality in his work, he is able to combine both the traditional way we assume these characters to look, but also morphing them just enough to get his point across.

Slater not only remarks on popular culture, but also has the technical skill to back up his thoughts. These paintings are incredibly well done, and the textures and shadings are fantastic. He also includes a mix of characters including R2-D2, Iron Man, Batman, The Pillsbury Doughboy and Felix the Cat. Bannett Slater’s collection of oil paintings is not only interesting to look at, but also has a message behind the beauty. Stats for Satirical Cartoon-Like Paintings Trending: Older & Buzzing
