British artist Mason Storm is known for provocative works that poke fun at the hypocrisies within modern society. In his compositions—which reference canonical paintings by Caravaggio, Johannes Vermeer, and Norman Rockwell—Storm inserts elements from movies, TV, and pop culture to create clever juxtapositions that speak to contemporary issues.
