A More Modern Jesus

Found this interesting painting of Jesus while looking for something else on the Internet. While not really Classical fine-art, nonetheless, it is very well executed. I think this is an example of where religious art can have a more contemporary sensibility. But still remain inspiring. Modern art does not have to always lapse into the gimmicky or the shock-for-shock sphere. This piece pays homage to the past, but, at the same time, moves forward and incorporates a more humanistic and personable approach. I like it.
