This Artist Makes Dazzling Illustrations Which Highlight The Irony Of Modern Life Life

The modern world has slipped into a void which is characterised by our increased slavery to technology and a rampant ignorance towards humanity, the planet, and life in general. The irony that exists in life at this moment is so blatant, that it has become difficult to step back and take it all in at once.

But Mexico City-based Italian freelance artist Marco Melgrati has done what only artists can – visualised the world into his own perspective and put it down as art, and it puts out the message very clearly: “We’re our own destroyers.”

Here are some of his best works.

These illustrations do the work of showing us a mirror, and they should not be taken as mere art.

Because there’s always more to it than what meets the eye!
