One of the wonderful things about good art is that they can be very effective in conveying important messages. Regardless if it is a piece of music, a framed painting, or any other medium, art can have a huge impact and influence on a person or even an entire society.

This is exactly the reason why we love the work of Al Margen. As you will see in the illustrations below, his thought-provoking illustrations accurately mirror some of the major problems we have in the modern world. The artworks are mostly dark and bleak and each one carries a profound message for all of us.

Check out the drawings and observe closely. Try to see the messages behind the illustrations and see where you stand in these relevant issues – are you part of the problem or are you doing your best to be a part of the solution?

In a post by the EncourageInspireChange website, we are asked the following questions:

“How do you feel about the images you see?.. What do we do with these feelings as they arise from looking at these images?.. Are you contributing to what they are representing? What can you do to change yourself and your own behaviors when it comes to what you see?”

We sure hope you took the time to reflect on these social commentaries conveyed through illustrated pieces.
