This Polish Artist Creates Eye-Opening Illustrations That Perfectly Capture Everything That’s Wrong With Today’s Society (30 Pics)

Published 7 months ago

Pawel Kuczynski is a 43-year-old artist from creates meaningful and eye-opening illustrations that perfectly capture everything that’s wrong with our society. In his illustrations, the artist discusses topics like corruption, pollution, and social media addiction, disguising everything in clever metaphors. We featured some of Pawel’s illustrations before, and now he’s back with a fresh batch of new ones.

The artist started creating the illustrations back in 2014 after a friend encouraged him to enter a cartoon competition. Nowadays his satirical illustrations are recognized all over the world and have been rewarded with over a hundred prizes and distinctions. In an interview with Bored Panda, Pawel said his inspiration comes not only from his peers and colleagues, but also from old masters like Caravaggio. Critics describe the artist as a surrealist but Pawel has a slightly different opinion, calling himself a “realistic illustrator… of our surreal times.”

“I think these are not only my observations,” says the artist. “I’m able to notice them as illustrations—to show them in a universal language, in the picture language, which is understandable to the whole world.” Pawel notices people’s reactions to his drawings and that they very often say that he illustrates their feelings. The artist says that through his satirical illustrations, he wants to encourage people to think more about their own problems.

Check out Pawel’s eye-opening illustrations in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
