“Life is too short to get a real job”, says Elia Colombo, also known as Gebe, and we are nothing but grateful for his unusual motto, as it got this Italian artist to where he is now. Gebe combines his passion for graphic design and philosophy to create thought-provoking artwork.

The freelance designer, illustrator, and self-named ‘free spirit’ turns his views and observations into colorful conceptual illustrations that hold a mirror to modern society, pointing out its flaws with a fair share of humor and irony. Gebe seeks perfection in simplicity, which results in a minimalistic and incredibly accurate satire in an image.

In his polished illustrations, Gebe reflects on controversial topics, such as social habits, media, and religion and makes us face the harsh reality of today’s world.

These clever illustrations provide quality food for thought, so we hope you are hungry!

I dunno, these things are not as bleak as it makes out. Giving birth, a good childhood, an education, Family, a rewarding career... when these are done right, they are kinda awesome. What else am I supposed to be running off to that is so amazing anyways?

This may not be what this is trying to get across, but it makes me think about school teaching us calculus but not how to do our taxes (or other things similar to that). Sure, we may feel good learning things that may or may not help our fancy future careers along, but wouldn't it be better to make sure we get what everyone has to do as an adult first?
