This new collection does a fantastic job pinpointing issues which are prevalent in modern-day society.
Using art to highlight the insanities of modern-day society is nothing new. However, this thought-provoking collection by Al Margen Pagina is. The artist from Buenos Aires, Argentina, believe there are persistent issues that are too problematic to ignore, therefore, picked up his pencil so others might consider them.
As Bored Panda reports, Pagina’s illustrations do an incredible job pinpointing pervasive issues in modern times. And, he’s not only critical of society, he’s quite pensive about his own work, as well. Talking about his works, he said:
“They are children of boredom, nonconformity or anger. <…> They are the representation of discarded ideas. They are the garbage of the subconscious. But they are more visceral and sincere than other drawings because they have no obligation to please. <…> Because they were born only by an impulse and nothing more. Because they were born to annoy because they show the imperfect.”
