It seems that these days there’s so much happening around us, it’s easy to lose track of what’s really important. And with constant media cover-ups and distractions, it becomes even harder. Lucky for us, there are still artists out there who dedicate their work to reminding us of the social issues we often forget.
Marco Melgrati is a Medellin, Colombia-based artist who creates thought-provoking illustrations that perfectly capture the sad truth of modern life. In his works, the artist deals with many topics that are more relevant today than ever before, including global warming, obsession with social media, and economic inequality. See Marco’s illustrations in the gallery below and if you enjoy them, we’re pretty sure you’ll love Daniel Garcia’s illustrations too – check them out here!
