There are so many issues in the world. From global warming to consumerism, to how we see ourselves and social media addiction. Michal Dziekan uses his work to illustrate these social issues and perhaps make you rethink your choices and lifestyle.

At first glance, his colorful art reminds us of cartoons and fun illustrations. However, Michal's artwork hides some deeper ideas and you will soon realize this art is not for kids. He uses bright hues and a happy mood to convey important issues of the modern world.

Michal is a Polish illustrator. On his website, he says: "I'm Michal Dziekan, aka this famous illustrator you have never heard of before. Shall we change that now?" On the website, he sells prints of his artwork. So if you really like his work, you can even hang it on your wall and support his craft.

I must agree. Driving drunk can and will hurt the driver and others on the road.

He also says that art is very important to him and he puts a lot of effort and ideas into his pieces: "Art is my blood, sweat, and tears translated into pixels and printed. It's my very own shroud of Turin and I am offering it to you. Let's bring some joy into our life!"

Michal has a very unique drawing style. His work is very colorful and bright, the people he draws all have exaggerated features, and some even look grotesque and eerie. He has created a detailed fantasy world that reminds us of ours and I believe that makes his artwork even more creepy and disturbing.

The artist uses a lot of metaphors and hidden meanings in his work. In one of the artworks' titles "Unhappy With What He Does" we can see a lot of irony. In "Honesty" there are a lot of hidden messages. Can you spot them all?

Why is sex education so bad in the US? Evangelical panic? Cultural puritan prudery?

This is a good way to portray therapy though, the therapist sees a person who is a mess, but also sees how to put him back together
