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).
