At times, art becomes a weapon for an artist to raise their voice and show a mirror to the world. With the unbelievable hike in the number of internet users around the world, being 'available 24x7' in the virtual world is something that everyone is following.
The illustrations which you'll see below highlight the harsh reality and our technology addiction. While some of them are understandable at first glance, some may take time.
Artist and illustrator, Gunduz Agayev says he focuses more on his creativity and social messages when creating any illustration. Through illustrations, he tries to crack a satirical joke at the society with a hope that at least some people would change for positive.
Let's have a look at his art which highlights modern times in the best way possible (no pun intended).
Interpretation: This shows how multifaceted have we become.
Interpretation: At one point in time, humans might forget what is peace, and we'll be lost so much in unnecessary wars, that mothers will have to give birth, not to their child, but a soldier who is destined to die.
Interpretation: They teach us how to use guns for safety rather than teaching how not to give birth to conflicts and stay peaceful.
Interpretation: The only sport we know these days are the battles between terrorists and armies.
Interpretation: First we were lead by dictators and forces and now we're lead by Facebook. Somehow, we always tend to become slaves.
Interpretation: Humans have gotten insensible enough to even create boundaries in space.
Interpretation: More people die in the world due to religious issues than any other mishap. So true!

Interpretation: The boundaries are making humans helpless.
Interpretation: I don't need to interpret the meaning of this illustration, it's visible that it is inspired by what happened in Pakistan with Malala Yousafzai, who is now a Nobel Prize winner.
Interpretation: While we spend thousands of dollars to buy things we don't need, some people die because of the lack of basic needs.
Interpretation: There are billions of galaxies in the universe, yet we humans claim to have explored so much; without realizing that what we've studied is just a size of a capsule.
