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

18. Untitled

19. You don’t need a miracle to change your job

20. Social media narcissism

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!
