We all know that perfection doesn’t exist. Our modern society includes many problems and troubles. Although we notice them, we aren’t too quick to work on fixing pressing societal issues. Al Margin, an illustrator from Argentina, creates depressing illustrations pinpointing the world problems in our times. He creates darker drawings that are sometimes louder and more thought-provoking.
Although he is very critical of his works and talks about them artfully, he says: “They are children born out of boredom, nonconformance or anger. They are the representation of rejected ideas. They are the trash of the subconscious. But these are more visceral and sincere than other sad drawings because they do not have any obligations to please. Because they were born only out of an impulse and nothing else. Because they were born to irritate because they illustrate the problems with society.” Take a look at some examples of his satirical works on various social problems below, and tell us which one was your favorite!
