Dystopian paintings are more common nowadays given the situation our planet and all life is in at the moment. With this idea in mind, New York artist Martin Wittfooth has created a series of dystopian paintings centred on animals wandering a post-apocalyptic world. In all of them, humans are absent, probably destroyed themselves, but leaving behind a world covered in plastic, electrical wires, dilapidated buildings and enormous quantities of pollution of all kind.

The paintings show a progression to a better world through images of sacrifice, death and rebirth. Animals entangled in wires with flowers coming from their eyes, a white horse set on fire by crazy monkeys and a dead wolf bursting with colourful blooms that feed a hummingbird.

Surprisingly enough, all of these represent us and our own human experience on this Earth. Wittfooth is an accomplished artist tried and true, telling us a story through his dystopian paintings about our very existence. If you are interested his other works, you can also follow him on Facebook and Twitter.
