Artist Toni Futura recreates iconic artworks with a modern twist to depict today's consumerism and pop culture society. The images tend to be slightly cheeky and very aggressive, which is completely based on the artist's personal interpretation of social standards and norms.

Many of the images incorporate iconic symbols, such as McDonald's as a major brand and Albert Einstein as an iconic figure. The images are artistically manipulated with a main goal, which is to poke fun at Western society and materialism. While images vary in subjects, each one has an underlying tone of racy humor and satiric gestures that hint towards the artist's view of modern society.

Toni Futura's consumerism and pop culture art is frequently displayed through online outlets such as Instagram and Facebook platforms.
