20 Deep Illustrations Revealing the Harsh Truth About the World Today

4 years ago

Artists often use their canvas as a portal to express how they feel about people, places, and things. Lately, they have taken to satirical illustrations to show that the world we are living in today is a place where all that glitters, isn’t really gold and there’s a story behind every image. Society is ridden with unforeseen evils in various scenarios and it’s time the world sat up and took note of it. While all of this isn’t a pretty sight to see, it does make for some truly hard hitting and sometimes, disturbing art.
