Using art to raise awareness about issues that demand acknowledgement and remedy is nothing new. In the past, for example, well-known British artist John Holcroft has used his unique style of illustration to depict the insanities of modern-day society. 

This time, two Romanian cartoonists, have put their imagination to work to depict a satirical view of our modern world.

Horia Crisan shared the following photos with Bored Panda, with the following sentiment:

“These cartoons represent our views on relevant topics, such as war or politics, and people sins, like immorality and shallowness.

Even though our work has been acclaimed by the art community and won many prizes, our main goal is to bring attention to touchy subjects.”
