These intriguing works of art poke fun at the blindly accepted norms of modern society.
Life is a funny thing. What might be considered to be even more humorous are the proposed and blindly accepted rituals of modern society, specifically trends such as taking selfies, caring ridiculous amounts about what others think, and the quest to consume more, more and more – despite the fact that peoples’ collective use of resources is unsustainable.
One artist who recognizes these funny truths and seeks to share them with others is Tony Futura, a digital artist based in Berlin, Germany. The activist spends much of time creating surreal works of arts that poke fun at the culture of consumerism prevalent in most nations, as well a the pop-culture focus of modern Western life.
In many of his creations, one is confronted by harsh truths that are humorous when one contemplates them with an open mind. Scroll through the 30+ masterpieces below and challenge your present perspective on what’s ‘normal.’ Follow Tony Futura on Instagram and Tumblr.
