The Sad Truth About Today’s World Illustrated By Steve Cutts

Art isn’t all fairytale photoshoots and landscape shots – it can also be done in sarcastic, sad drawings and act as catalyst of change. And Steve Cutts thinks that many things in the world should be different. Work shouldn’t be a grinding, soul-crushing rat race for the almighty dollar. Consumerism shouldn’t hold a vice-like grip on our lives. And social media, well, we need to throw off the shackles we so eagerly put on ourselves. Wouldn’t life be better with these social issues solved?

Steve Cutts is an illustrator and animator from London. Faced with the choice of working at McDonald’s or studying Fine Arts, he chose the latter. He worked at Glueisobar as the main storyboard concept artist before leaping to freelance work. Cutts makes videos and images that caricatures modern life and its ironic situations – he states that the insanity of humanity and global issues are an endless pool of inspiration for sarcasm and drawings.

What's more shocking is that people are shocked about it, while supporting political, social and economic vectors that lead to this reality. (capitalism, individualism, atheism)

The ironic thing is that without social media he wouldn't even be able to disseminate his views and artistry in the first place...

Oh, come on, people. Yes, these are classic topics, yes these are thoughts and images we've all got in our heads everyday, but to bring those thoughts into life is the action, if they stay just in our heads, that's passive. No, these images aren't shocking or new, but they're pretty well made illustrations of problems we still ARE facing today and we will as long as we keep on unimpressingly disrespect the artists who at least are trying. As long as we have to face these problems, the fight is still not over. Keep up the good job. Stay creative. And keep in mind the meaning of "creative" relates to "creation", so the idea itself is not enough unless it's brought out into something concrete.

Yes! Couldn't agree more. Just saying "We're aware of these issues" doesn't mean that this artist shouldn't give his take on them! He's expressing his point of view on these topics.
