50 Thought-Provoking Art Pieces That (Rightfully) Slam Current Society.

Artists can use their creativity to make people see the truth, and that's a good thing. Personal creativity has allowed these artists to communicate feelings and thoughts through artistic expressions that will comfort some and disturb others. Sometimes, we don't always see the issues that are right in front of us. But in this case, all it took was a series of paintbrush strokes to make people see how messed up the world really is. So, while these illustrations may not use verbal language or written words, they're certainly powerful enough to remind people how backwards society has become. To prove it, here is a series of collections from some of the most creative art around.

#1. Man on the Moon by Dran gives us an eerie look into what our future holds when we head into space.

As humans, we tend to litter everywhere. In the not so distant future, we'll probably start colonizing the moon only to find that the trash we dumped years ago, has come back to haunt us. This illustration reminds us that if we don't figure out better ways to dispose of trash, we'll run out of space.

#2. Evolution by Dan Piraro illustrates how humanity has come a full circle after thousands of years.

Piraro shows humanity evolving from the sea, turning into primates, and eventually into prehistoric humans, before evolving into modern day people. But the evolution takes humanity back to the sea... to pollute the waters from which Piraro believes we came from.

#3. Rat Race by Steve Cutts shows how humanity is always in a rush against the clock no matter what.

People are always running around trying to get things done, whether they're racing to get to work on time or to get home. But people don't always take the time to slow down and focus on the things that really matter.

#4. Problems by Pawel Kuczynski makes you think about whether you are living in your life in the dark.

In this illustration, a man chooses to live in the cold and the darkness. He even cuts the sticks on a ladder in order to make a fire to stay warm. But he is totally oblivious to the fact that he could have kept the ladder as it was in order to climb out of the hole he was stuck in.

#5. Happiness Trap by Steve Cutts shows how money can be used like cheese to trap people like rats.

It's common for people to get tricked into this notion that money is everything and that it can buy you a life of luxury. In this depiction, it shows how money is not really going to stir you towards happiness, but rather an early grave.
