Danish writer Mikael Wulff and cartoon artist Anders Morgenthaler – the creative duo known as Wumo – has created a brilliant series of graphs that illustrate some of the basic painful truths of everyday life in the Western world. Their graphs and diagrams are snarky and sarcastic but, for the most part, true. This, coupled with their simple and official-looking design, makes them a delight to look at.

Polish illustrator Pawel Kuczynski’s grim and sharply satirical works, which we’ve featured before here, are a perfect example of art that speaks volumes. Kuczynski’s images are so powerful because they force us to face some of the worst realities of our times. It’s beautiful – not in a flowers-and-sunlight kind of way, but in a brutally truthful way. He addresses war, political manipulation and hypocrisy, environmental damage, economic disparity and many other ills facing mankind today.
Polish illustrator Pawel Kuczynski cleverly uses satire to portray today’s social, political and cultural reality. At first sight his illustrations might seem funny, but when you look closer, they actually show some serious problems of today’s world.
