Pictures like the ones you are about to see have been surfacing more and more lately, as artists around the world feel compelled to respond to some of the ugliness they see in the world. Viewer discretion is advised.

While it may be true that artists who truly have the courage to share their thoughts on important social issues are rare, it’s great to see their emergence becoming more frequent. Even in the music industry there has been a rise of artists who have something to say and want it to be heard by the masses. While the majority of artists are not in this space and artists who do speak out are met with resistance, it’s inspiring nonetheless when it does happen.

The art below draws on a wide range of controversial issues ranging from objectification of women, war and power, social media, political abuse of resources, public perception, religion, and more.

These images may strike an unpleasant chord with some of you, but that’s okay. These are aspects of our world that we need to address. My recommendation when viewing this art is to take your time and be open, as it is of course open to interpretation. Please remember that art is open to subjective interpretation and reflects only one person’s view of the world. Feel free to share your take on the illustrations in the comment section below!

Some of the images below are done by famed artist Luis Quiles and others by Steve Cutts.

Viewer discretion is advised.
