20 Thought-Provoking Illustrations Capture Exactly What’s Wrong With Today’s Society

Our modern society is far from perfect. In fact, there are many problematic and troubling things with it. Unfortunately, even if we do notice them, we’re not too quick to fix these matters.

One illustrator from Buenos Aires, Al Margen, has created some truly incredible drawings portraying the world as he sees it – a dark and depressing place. His images are louder than words and will definitely make you wonder.

The illustrator himself is quite critical of his works and talks about them in quite an artistic manner: “They are children of boredom, nonconformity or anger. They are the representation of discarded ideas. They are the garbage of the subconscious. But they are more visceral and sincere than other drawings because they have no obligation to please. Because they were born only by an impulse and nothing more. Because they were born to annoy because they show the imperfect.”

Take a look at some of his thought-provoking works below and let us know what you think. Do you believe they are a true representation of today’s society?
