Because the truth can be hard to grasp, a number of artists have used their abilities in recent years to expose accepted ‘norms’ of society in creative, thought-provoking ways. 

From “This Activist’s Artwork Speaks Volumes About Present-Day Society [Must See]” to “This Artwork Is Probably The Most Accurate (And Scary) Portrayal Of Modern Life We’ve Ever Seen” all illustrations are unique, yet challenge viewers to open their minds to the absurdities of modern life.

Spanish artist Luis Quiles is another activist who has created artwork to inspire deep contemplation, but his creations may be the most controversial yet. As you’ll view below, many of his illustrations center on the objectification of women, war and power, social media, religion, and the glorification of technology in the modern world.

It might be agreed that the images are so powerful because they evoke deep visceral responses – be they arousal, terror or disgust – which challenge common thinking. If any of the images strike a chord with you, that’s okay. Just take a moment to reflect on what it is that inspires a reaction, and move on to the next at your own pace.

The following depict uncomfortable aspects of the world that need to be addressed. Viewer discretion is advised.
