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.
