This fascinating artwork illustrates the darker side of modern society many prefer to ignore.
Through the stroke of a paintbrush or the line of a pen, a social activist is able to convey deep truths that might not otherwise be received by the public. It’s for this reason so many individuals have used their artistic talents to depict painful truths about society that affect everyone, though many prefer to ignore their existence.
Belgium-based artist Brecht Vandenbroucke prefers to illustrate the darker side of modern society so that change might eventually result. As Design Taxi shares, some of his drawings highlight peoples’ obsession with social media and technology, and others emphasize the trend to follow the crowd and never question the status quo.
Though the subjects he sketches and colors vary, each emphasizes the world from an alternative (and sometimes satirical) perspective. Follow the artist on Instagram, and scroll through 35+ of his most popular creations:
