I love this take on portraying police officials from artist Jansson Stegner. His whimsical style portraits feature officials, such as police officers, and places them in positions to convey that they are most certainly not paying attention to work. Instead, they appear posing for the ‘camera’ such as the police man pictures among the pink roses.

Really unusual, great stuff.

Implications - Though art such as that of Jansson Stregner seems strange at first, it is in fact riddled with social commentary. Esoteric pieces such as these provide artists and companies with a great way to communicate a controversial message to the mass consumer, and will hopefully encourage deeper thought.
