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.
1. Love your enemies
2. Through love
3. The death of privacy
4. Could be love
5. It’s time to quit your job
6. Self made
7. Opinion leader and influencers
8. Learn to forget
9. Pay attention!!
10. Deforestation: The human costs
11. War is closer than you think
12. Industry boss
13. A fatal addiction: War in the name of God
14. From communism to capitalism
15. Face your fear
16. Use it better
17. Be who you want to be
19. You don’t need a miracle to change your job
20. Social media narcissism
