Humanity has seen many different times on this earth, many of them are amazing, while others quite drastic. But modern era conflicts appeared to have ruined the idea of a peaceful society. The humanity has succumbed to brutal social norms. It's a dark side of mankind, which is an unfortunate reality.
Many artists have tried to portray the tragedies that we undergo and overlook. But Luis Quiles, a Spanish artist, created the series of illustrations brilliantly depicting the bitter truth of mankind. Through his art, Quiles challenges the controversial issues ranging from drug addiction, censorship, and corruption, to sexism, violence, child abuse, and most pertinent of all, our social-media-crazed obsession.
Many of us are, knowingly or unknowingly, the victims of such absurdities of modern culture. So, let's peek into the reality of what our society has become.
Social media has become the new addiction of this generation. Friends, selfies, likes and comments actually matter a lot.
These people don't think for nutrition but in order to maintain their standards of lifestyle, they consume junk food even when it is not healthy in any way.
Freedom of expression is a myth. There is a censorship on free thought and consequences which follow are tragic. "You can say what you want - but make sure it is exactly how we want it."
Though religious institutions are some of the wealthiest bodies, this is how they are working against poverty and hunger. They must know that they have failed in fulfilling their so called promises in the name of God and religion.
How female sexuality is used to divert the attention of a hormone-driven population of men. I will call it a dark pit that youth loves to fall in.
Choice of words can be bought by money. They have rented your tongue with just a few bucks.
The innocent people become victims of unnecessary wars for something that was meant to keep the world at peace. Ironic, isn't it?
These little kids have no ideas on how the world works. And that empty slate, instead of being filled with colors of creativity, is crammed with senseless lies about religion and superiority all leading these young ones to pick up guns instead of toys. Such a shame.
Perfect physiques are now used as products and showcases.
People die due to drugs that they take as life-savers. It's strange but at once very true!
