9 Thought Provoking Illustrations That Will Make You Pause And think

Art is a powerful form of expression, not only of beauty and aesthetic quality, but also of ideas and protests.

Cuban artist Angel Boligán is a master at this, delivering incredibly insightful critiques of the evils of the modern world within the confines of a beautifully designed single design.

Boligán, who now lives in Mexico City after being invited to work at El Universal, one of the country's leading newspapers, has received numerous international awards and worldwide recognition for his emphasis on rampant consumerism, loneliness, addiction and excessive dependence. of technology in western society. "I'm a social caricaturist, a graphic chronicler of the time we live," he told Bored Panda. “My drawings are usually conceptual, I like to provoke a smile accompanied by some reflection.”

Boligán is inspired by life and society and is a "hunter of ideas, emotions and the absurdities that are happening between us". He takes slices of humor, graphics, metaphors and some poetry, and serves them in ink with a touch of watercolor.
