These Illustrations Perfectly Show How F*cked Up Our Society Really Is

Be prepared: This is going to mess with your mind.

In his latest project, Spanish artist Luis Quiles set out to reveal the uglier side of our society through a variety of images that combine current affairs with pop culture.

In the series, Quiles takes his artistic talents to the extreme as he challenges a wide range of controversial issues ranging from homophobia, censorship and corruption to sexism, violence and even child abuse.

He conveys a powerful message through his artwork that calls upon strong instinctual human emotions, such as fear, disgust and arousal.

While his artwork may, at times, seem a bit unsettling, his images make you question the darker side of the human mind, as they capture the raw discerning truths often overlooked in our modern world.

Take a look at the images below to see Quiles’ powerful visual series.
